Adornaments: The Lights Kit
Brand Nelkin Designs
The Lights: Ilumina and Espira!
These beaded ornaments are knit from the bottom up in the round and then stuffed.
Illumina can be made with one of two techniques, pre-stringing or placing beads.
Espira is worked with pre-strung beads that are slipped between sts.
(You can see more photos of these 2 designs here.)
All the techniques are simple, so start with one, and then try the next!
All kits include unique download code for pdf pattern and video tutorials to help you with the tricksy bits! Kits are packaged in a see-through plastic tube.
