Simple Christmas Bells
These bells are crocheted in continuous rounds, in one piece, from the top of the bell to the bottom of the bell. If you would like to change colors for some of the rounds I recommend you finish off with an invisible join at the end of each color and rejoin with the next color with a standing stitch (single crochet or half double crochet depending on the round you are working). This will give you a totally invisible join for the colors and make the tidiest finished project.
Add a jingle bell to the inside to finish the bell design; or attach as a ‘bow’ or ’embellishment’ to a Christmas Gift.
You can also use a piece of ribbon for the tie instead of the yarn which I have used; or embroider on the outside of the bell to add a personal touch.
