Estonian Style: Nupps and Starflowers with Denise Bell
The Estonian style of lacework involves several stitches that many lace knitters are unfamiliar with or intimidated by. 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 see examples of nupps and starflowers in finished projects and will work on a sample swatch to learn the techniques to execute them.
Note: Students must be skilled at executing standard increases and decreases and be proficient at chart reading. Experience with lace-weight yarn is required.
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.
