Easy Christmas Crochet Bell Pattern
These crochet bells are made with worsted weight yarn. I used Big Twist Twinkle, which adds a nice sparkle effect to the “silver bells” (makes me think of the song!) 🙂
The bells are worked from the top down, in the round. All you’ll really need to know is single crochet, slip stitches, increasing, and working in the round.
My favorite part about this design is that it works up in literally 10-15 minutes! That’s what I call a quick pattern!

Explanation: Make some festive silver bells for your Christmas tree this holiday season! This design is quick, easy, and even features a clapper inside the bell to make it look more realistic.
- Big Twist Twinkle Yarn (97% Acrylic, 3% Polyester, 380 yds 347 m, 6 oz / 170 g) less than one skein grey
- You can use any worsted weight yarn, but I love using Big Twist Twinkle because it adds sparkle to the bell!
- F/3.75mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- The first 2 rounds will be worked continuously without slip stitches. On round 3, we will join with a slip stitch and continue joining from here forward.
- Bell is worked from the top down, with the clapper sewn in separately.
- Feel free to adjust hook size as necessary. I crochet loosely, so I used an F hook, but you can go up to a G/4mm if you crochet tightly.
- Ch 1 does not count as a sc.

Crochet Bell Step by Step Tutorial:

To attach the clapper to the bell, take the top tail and pull it through with a crochet hook or needle. Then, sew it in place securely using the end.
How can I crochet a small bell?
This bell is already pretty small to begin with, but if you want a tiny crochet bell, you can use a lighter weight yarn. Vanna’s Glamour is a great sport weight yarn with sparkles in it that would make a great substitution for Big Twist Twinkle.
