Knitted and felted bells for your Tree

I'm a bit obsessed with Xmas so made this wee pattern up. Maybe someone else will like it, maybe not, but I'm plonking it here anyway!






Use 100% wool and needles to give fairly loose tension.

Cast on 30, work 2 rs st st.
*k1, k2tog* to end, 20 sts.
Work 13 rows st st.
*k2tog* to end, 10 sts
Purl 1 row
*k2tog* to end, 5 sts. Cut long tail, thread through and pull up 5 loops and sew seam. It won't look amazing.





You could knit it in the round if you enjoy that sort of thing. Now felt it in the washing machine at at least 40 degrees c. Pull into shape esp around base before drying. Add loop and maybe a wee bell.

There you are, bells for your tree.
