Written in Australian English.

Construction

Worked from the base upwards on set of four double point needles. The cast on method uses a temporary cotton crochet chain in contrasting colour. Stitches are picked up with wool. Bag section is knitted in lace pattern stitch. A lace edging for the top of the bag is knitted in a strip; then the edge stitches are picked up with double point needles. These are knitted with the main stitches of bag that are released from crochet chain. An eyelet row for the silk ribbon is worked; the stitches of edging and main bag are cast off together. Shaping for pixie-style base is formed with decreases by picking up stitches held with crochet chain. Wide silk ribbon forms a soft handle. 7mm ribbon is woven through eyelets as a drawstring.  Glass beads are attached with silk thread to the end of the i-cord dangle.

Pattern

Using crochet cotton and crochet hook, chain 75. Cut end and draw through loop. Turn chain over to see bumps at back of each chain. Begin with Iris wool and set of 3.25mm needles. Insert a needle into first, and each one of these bumps and complete a knit stitch (75 sts).

Arrange these stitches onto three needles evenly (25-25-25). Place red marker at beginning of round and knit one round, knitting the first stitch at start of each needle firmly so the wool is not slack between the points.

Set up for lace pattern repeats: Place red marker at beginning of round. Knit 15, place marker, knit 15, place marker, knit 15, place marker, knit 15, place marker, knit 15. knit 8 rounds. Work 3 repeats of Flowers of Wisdom Lace Pattern.

Allow to dry in an upright position. Make edging for top of bag.

Note: Cast on and cast off edges will be grafted together.

Knit edging with two 3.25mm double point needles (these do not have to be double point; they are convenient for edgings). Using crochet cotton make 8 chains. Pull last loop through and cut yarn. Knot this end so you know which end to unzip later on for grafting. With Iris pick up these 8 stitches (through underside bumps as for main section). Work 11 repeats of edging. Do not cut yarn. Hold last row of 8 stitches on a yarn holder.

Take up the spare needle. Right side facing, pick up and knit 75 sts along top edge of edging (between each bump there is a strand; insert needle under each strand and knit a stitch). This should work out exactly as 75 stitches.

Carefully remove bag stitches from cotton holder one by one, placing on original needles. With wrong side of edging facing right side of bag knit one round, taking a stitch from edging needle and a stitch from bag needle and knitting together as one (control the two needles in left hand or you may drop stitches).

Bejewelled Ring Spell Bell

A golden ring begins your secret and heralds riches. When entering the spell, pass finger through ring as though wearing it and ring bell with a sprightly movement, using only that particular finger. The tinkle will waft through the eyelets in the top of the bell. If you have a precious ring that fits your Jupiter finger, (pointing finger, right hand) this will enlarge your command.




 

Magickal Crochet Bell with a Catalyst

 

Designed by Dianthe Bells

Published by Dianthe Bells (Australia)

 

MATERIALS:

¼ ball 8ply/DK Morris Estate 100% Australian Wool in Crocus or

Pure silk knitting yarn

Silk thread in crocus for sewing side seams

Metallic Gold embroidery thread for attaching ring and jingle bell

3.50mm crochet hook

Wool needle

Gold or jewelled ring worn by you (must be genuine)

Jingle Bell on ring or fae bells

NOTES: Australian English terms used. UK treble/US double crochet

PATTERN:

Make two bell halves.

Row 1: Chain 6.

Row 2: 1 treble in 4th chain from hook. Chain two. 2 treble in last two chains. (2tr, 2ch, 2tr across row). Chain 3 for turning chain.

Row 3: 2 treble, 2 chains, 2 treble all into middle loop (of 2 chains) of previous row. Chain 3 for turning chain.

Row 4: 11 treble evenly across row (11 tr in all).

Rows 5 through to 10: Work 11 treble across row.

Row 11: Increase 1 treble at each end of row by working two trebles into one (13 tr in all).

FINISHING:

Seam sides together by small overcast stitch. Weave in all yarn ends. Wash in pure soap or soap nuts, rinsing three times. Stand a large, clean egg in egg cup. Dry bell over shape, pinching out lower edge to a gentle flute.

Turn bell inside out. Sew the jingle bell or fae bells to top centre. Turn right side out. Using gold embroidery thread, sew jewelled ring to top of bell.

Write a money spell, form into a scroll to fit under the bell. If a fresh Bay leaf is available, wrap this around the spell. Tie with royal blue silk. Place on altar or dressing table. When entering the spell, pass finger through ring as though wearing it and ring bell with a spritely movement, using only that particular finger. The tinkle will waft through the eyelets in the top of the bell. If you have a golden ring that fits your Jupiter finger, (pointing finger, right hand) this will enlarge your command.

It is worthwhile securing your own Bay leaf (Laurus nobilis—the noble, crowning laurel) supply. Small trees can be grown in large terracotta pots. Their enticing fragrance is the pleasure of Jupiter. Used in Ancient Greece for oracle divination by inhaling bay odours or chewing leaves and in Phyllomancy (leaf divination). The essence, when stroked across the forehead, imparts a lifting mind to those who dwell on Jupiter’s plane.
