To make this knitted Christmas bells, I used:

-white Ribbon XL which you can buy here

-two bells which you can buy here

-a pair of knitting needles size 10,5 or 7mm

-2 yards  satin ribbon

Cast on 12 stitches and knit 35 needles in garter stitch, but at one side of your work you slip the first stitch when you start the needle. After 35 needles cast of the stitches

Pick up 40 stitches at the opposite side of where you slipped the first stitch

1 row knit

2 row purl

3 row knit

4 row purl

5 row knit

6 row cast of in purl

Close the sides of the bell and pick up the stitches you slipped and pull them together.

Make another bell, gether the bells with the ribbon and put the bells inside.

Merry Xmas everybody

Pattern knitted pouf

Here I will show you how the knitted pouf is made

It’s not diffucult and  the pictures will also show you how it works.

Material:

I used three bundles of The shirt yarn ( wich you can buy here)

You use knitting needles 18mm, I made my own, because I wanted them longer.

How I made the pouf, size cross cut 39 cm

Cast on 22 stiches with two threads of  Zpagetti yarn, if you have any other thread which is thick enough, feel free to use it.

22 stitches is equal to about 40 cm wide (15,7 inch)

Continue in garter stitch

Work till you have the length two times longer than you work is wide (80cm)(31,4 inch)

So if you want to make a bigger pouf cast on more stiches and make your work longer!

Close the short sides of your work

Than work a thread through the long side of your work, but skip each time one row. In the pictures it is shown with a purple thread.

when you did this all the way, you pull the thread very hard, so your work wil close!

Then make a inside cover out of strech material, wich is a little bit bigger than the knitted piece!

Put the inside cover in the knitted piece and fill it firmly, with whatever you like, I filled it with feathers.

Close the top of the inside cover firmly.

Then close the top the same way as you closed the bottom, so skip each time 1 row and pull and close firmly!

And there it is, your own beautiful POUF, made by you!!!!
