Adornaments: The Stars Kit
Brand Nelkin Designs
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.
All kits include unique download code for pdf pattern and video tutorials to help you with the tricksy bits! The designer has 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.
