Oooohhh… this ornament is ALL.ABOUT.BEADS! (With a few knit stitches in between!)

Star of Butin is knit from the outside in with beads slipped in between stitches. It uses a German Twisted cast on with beads, but don’t worry! I made a video for you! Star of Butin is inspired by one of my first jewelry patterns, Butin Collar.

Star of Butin is blocked and stiffened when finished. There is a DETAILED blog post on how to do this here.
