Make these from odds and ends of threads or yarn. These could be used to decorate a package, tie on the baby's bed, etc. Use size knitting needles to correspond to yarn or thread used. Any of the new yarns combined with metallic thread would make a colorful set of bells. 

 

Shirley. just wanted you to know how adorable the Xmas bells are. The yarn I bought at Wal-Mart was $1.49 per ball. I bought 3 and some ribbon so my total cost was under $6    I have made 20+ bells and have lots of yarn left. What fun.  I have emailed this picture and the bell instructions to several friends.  The bells are adorable and will perk up an present. I hope the bells will then go on the tree after the present is opened.

Thanks for the Xmas Joy !!   Sally Titus  Lake Placid, Florida

 

 

 

 

 

Here is this year's crop of bells. They are made using sugarNspice yarn. What fun. My 12 year old grand daughter made the blue one from some left over chenille, then she could not resist trying it out on the cat.

I was also asked if I had the same pattern in Crochet (If you had the booklet “Exchange knitting to crochet or crochet to knitting” You'd know just how easy this can be).

See more about the booklet at http://www.knitting-crochet.com/exchange/index.html 

I've redone the same pattern for you in crochet. Wasn't that easy?
