Stellina Hat & Fingerless Mitts

Designed by Terri Keller

Designer Terri Keller doesn’t remember where she first learned to do the star stitch pattern, but fondly recalls making a layette set with the stitch and committing it to memory. Here, the unique texture combines with a crunchy alpaca/silk/linen blend yarn to create the perfect slouchy hat and cozy crochet mitts.
