These delightful knit bells look adorable on holiday baskets, new baby gifts, candy jars, or simply tied on as an ornamental to the front of a wrapped birthday, anniversary, wedding, or Christmas present.
It is a very easy craft project as the knitted bells take just minutes to complete which makes them a wonderful all season craft project. As each bell takes only about fifteen minutes to create a pair of bells can easily be made in well under an hour.
I knit the bells as I watch the evening news and it always surprises me how quickly they are completed. I keep a stock pile of these ornaments on hand so they are ready as needed for gift giving events. This pattern has long been a favourite of mine and I am sure that it will quickly become a favourite of yours. Give it a try.
Pink, blue, yellow, and white make for wonderful add-ons to a new baby, anniversary, or birthday gift. Green, red, and white bells are perfect for the Christmas holiday season.
A friend of mine even requested enough white knitted bells to decorate her Christmas tree and I happily complied as I had quite a few tucked away at that time. These little knitted bells come in handy in a number of gift giving situations.
I also like to attach a pair to jar and basket gifts. Candy jars looks sweet when the colour is contrasts or matches the colour of the jar's contents. Pastel hues are ideal for Easter and new baby whereas brighter colours suit a birthday or Christmas theme.
