Stellita is one of three “Star” patterns in Adornaments… a beaded holiday ornament collection.

Stellita is knit from the center out with beads and stiffened when finished. There is a DETAILED blog post on stiffening here.

Stellita is worked with pre-strung beads that are placed on yarnovers, it only has 7 rounds and is the smaller version of Stello.

The pattern includes detailed exclusive video tutorials to help you with the tricksy bits!

Beads and other Materials:
144 Size 8/0 glass seed beads (interior of star)
27 Size 6/0 glass seed beads (beaded bind off)
Dental floss threader (for stringing beads)
Tool for placing beads: super floss, .75-1mm steel crochet hook or a Beadle Needle (Bind off)
