Bee-tlejuice Crocheted Bee

Ya’ll can keep your PSL’s…the arrival of October means just one thing for me…I can now watch Beetlejuice all day every day.

To celebrate my love for the ghost with the most, I made this little crocheted “bee”tlejuice bee. Isn’t he the cutest?

This pattern is inspired by this  Buzzy Bee pattern, though I omitted the antenna and obviously changed the color scheme. I also added a few extra rows here and there, as noted below.
