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.
