This dainty bell was tatted 3D from top to bottom in one pass, using one shuttle and Dora Young's knotless method rings and chains (aka 'split chain'). The red beads were pre-strung beside the ball. A little stiffener was added to keep the bell and clapper in shape. It is ideal for weddings or Christmas. The pattern was published in my book, 'Beads in Tatting' (Kangaroo Press/Lacis, 1997).
