Introducing The Stars: Stellita, Stello, and Astellar

These mercerized perle cotton ornaments are knit from the center out with beads and stiffened when finished.

Stellita and Stello work with pre-strung beads that are placed on yarnovers.
Astellar works with pre-strung beads that are slipped in between sts.
(You can see more photos of these 3 designs here.)

All kits include unique download code for pdf pattern and video tutorials to help you with the tricksy bits!  I've also written up a blog post about stiffening the ornaments which should be helpful when you get to that step!

Kits are packaged in a see-through plastic tube.
