Pattern Description:

Crocheted Bells, designed by Maria Leigh and Flora Yang using Silken Kydd, is a beautiful translation to crochet of Maria's orignal knitted Bells cardigan. Its graceful bell stitch pattern is eye-catching, yet at the same time, disarming in its simpliclity. The two sleeves are crocheted first, and then joined with the body at the yoke. Working the yoke in one piece with no seaming is an enjoyable breeze.
