Estonian Decorative Stitches - SOLD OUT

The Estonian stitches of nupps, star stitches and clusters add texture and interest to your knitting. Often found in lace patterns, these stitches can be tricky to work! Join us as we learn a few different ways to work these interesting stitches while knitting a lace scarf.

Prerequisites: Intermediate - Knit, purl, decreases, increases. Some lace knitting experience is preferred.

Materials Info

There is a $2 material fee included in the price of registration.  It includes handouts and patterns.

Students must bring:  Smooth, light colored fingering weight yarn (approx. 500 yards to make scarf), working needles appropriate for yarn - size 3 or 4 will work for most knitters (Note: lace tipped needles are strongly recommended), cable needle, crochet hook in one size smaller than working needles, one dpn in 2 sizes smaller than working needles (optional), stitch markers, and homework.

Homework:  Using solid, light-colored, fingering weight yarn, and size 3 or 4 needles, cast on 29 sts using Crochet Provisional CO (see below). Leaving bottom sts on waste yarn, work 6 rows of garter as follows:

Row 1 (RS): Slip 1 st purlwise, k across all sts.

Row 2 (WS): Slip 1 st purlwise, k across all sts.

Repeat these 2 rows twice more for 6 rows of garter, ending with WS row. Leave knitting on needles. 

(Crochet Provisional CO: Using waste yarn and a crochet hook, crochet a chain several stitches longer than required for cast on. Using working yarn and needles, pick up and knit cast on stitches along center spine of crochet sts.)
