Introducing Adornaments... my first foray into beaded ornaments! SO FUN!

There are 5 ornament patterns total in Adornaments, 3 in The Stars (Stellita, Stello and Astellar) and 2 in The Lights (Ilumina and Espira). The Stars are knit in cotton and worked from the center out with beads. They are stiffened when finished to help them keep their shape. The lights are knit in fingering weight wool with beads and then stuffed.

The patterns include links to video tutorials to help you learn the tricksy bits in the patterns. It's time to start playing with beads and make some lovely little gifts! These are GREAT present toppers, and making a strand of 6 Stellitas would make the most beautiful garland!

The patterns are also available in kits that include everything needed to make Stars and Lights!
