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

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

Stello is worked with pre-strung beads that are placed on yarnovers, it only has 11 rounds and is the larger version of Stellita.

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)
