Needlework author, teacher, retailer, and PBS television host Shay Pendray brings to each issue of PieceWork a sampling of patterns, charts, and instructions, gleaned primarily from old magazines and books that are no longer generally available. Our adaptation of Holiday Bells to Filet-Crochet, Cross-Stitch, or Needlepoint, from the November 1926 issue of Needlecraft Magazine, was included in the November/December 2004 issue of PieceWork.

Here are the written instructions and chart for the design in filet crochet exactly as they appeared in Needlecraft Magazine.
