; a small beaded accessory that is perfect for quick gift knitting!
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 (blog post coming next week) to help them keep their shape. The Lights are knit in fingering weight wool with beads and then stuffed.
Adornaments e-book which contains both The Stars and The Lights patterns for $12, OR you can purchase kits for The Stars and/or The Lights ($19/each) which contain a download code for that pattern along with all the materials you need. The patterns include links to video tutorials to help you learn the tricksy bits in the designs.
Kits are available from your LYS (just ask them to order some!) or my Etsy store... the e-book is up on Ravelry!
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! I'm working on that next!
