Estonian Style: Nupps and Starflowers with Denise Bell
The Estonian style of lacework involves several stitches that may be unfamiliar or intimidating to many lace knitters . A nupp, unlike a bobble, lies flat and has little surface disruption. A starflower begins with the same first step as the nupp, but rather than building inwards it blooms into an open feature.
Students will work on a sample swatch to learn the techniques for nupps and starflowers. Denise will show finished projects using both.
Note: Students must be skilled at working standard increases and decreases, be proficient at chart reading, and have experience with lace-weight yarn.

3.5 or 3.75mm/US 4 or US 5 with sharp points (straight or circular as long as the tips are sharp)
Note: the teacher will supply a small amount of yarn for swatching in class.

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
