When I first discovered what a Teru teru bozu is I decided I absolutely had to crochet one.
A Teru teru bōzu is a little traditional hand-made doll made of white paper or cloth that Japanese farmers began hanging outside of their window by a string. This amulet is supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to stop or prevent a rainy day.

"Teru" is a Japanese verb which describes sunshine, and a "bōzu" is a Buddhist monk (compare the word bonze), or in modern slang, "bald-headed"; it is also a term of endearment for addressing little boys. (Wikipedia)

And if you are in need of rain, you can simply hang your teru teru bozu upside down and he will invite the rain to come. Grin
This little spirit is a friend of all children which want to spend they free time out-of-doors!!:D:D:D
I definitely love it!! Grin Grin Grin

I just wanted to do something to celebrate the new season and the one that's coming Spring and Summer, so I decided to do something with sun even if they look like stars  Grin Grin the purpose was to do sun at the sunset and sunrise  Grin

bigger suns are around 5cm while smaller are around 3.5cm wide, without the additional rays you have a five pointed star  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Ok, I know it is probably a little late to post now something for Easter decoration....but as I already mention I'm new here....so here it it what I did for some friends and for me to be hanged on an Easter tree  Grin

and here is the pattern:

3mm hook
100% acrylic yarn 1.7 oz = 182 yd (50g = 167m) balls, knitting needle 3.5-4, colors you like
12 mm bell
stitch marker
tapestry needle
2mm hook
thin yarn to be used with 2mm hook

ch =chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
() = work directions in brackets the number of times specified
rnd(s) =round(s)
st(s) = stitch (es)

Notes: Work in continuous rnds; do not join or turn unless otherwise instructed. Use a stitch marker or colored yarn between the last st of one rnd and first st of next rnd. Flip the end of the yarn to the front on one rnd then to the back of next rnd. Continue for each rnd. Leave yarn tail for sewing pieces together at the end.

Shape 1 bell:
Start a magic ring with 8 sc
Rnd 1: 2 sc in each st hiding starting yarn (16 sts)
Rnd 2: (sc in first st, 2 sc in next st) repeat 8 times (24 sts)
Rnds 3-11: sc in each st around (24 sts)
bind off with a sl st leaving long tail of yarn, with needle go in and out sts through the bell to reach the top of it. End with yarn towards the inside of bell, turn the inside of bell out and sew small bell inside (see picture)

ch 16, sew chain folded in half on top of bell

With 2mm hook and thin yarn, add 2 sc in each st of base of bell (round 11). If you do not have a 2mm hook you can use the 3mm hook and add one more round at the end of the bell with a yarn of an alternative color in respect to the main color of the bell.
Optional: with 2mm hook ch 36, fold in ring and sew it to 9th round of bell. Alternatively with 3mm hook ch 27, fold in ring and sew it to 9th round of bell.

Shape 2 bell:
Work the same as shape 1 until round 10
Rnd 11: (sc in first 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) repeat 8 times (32 sts)
Rnd 12: (sc in first 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) repeat 8 times (40 sts)
continue and complete as for shape 1

Size depends on your gauge, yarn and hook, mine are around 4cm (1.6in) tall.
If you like to download the pdf pattern you can find it on deviantART: http://cinciut.deviantart.com/art/Bells-amigurumi-pattern-203563231
or on Ravelry

Enjoy the bells!! Grin Grin Grin
