Estonian lace with nupps free knitting pattern

 

Do you remember the post where I told you I am designing a shawl for Mothers Day? The one with cable edging with twisted trim? I would say it was a part one.

Well, now comes the part two – lace pattern with “nupps”.

I wanted the lacy part repeat itself to match the lace next to cable and I wanted to elaborate the cable trim with “nupp” pattern. “Nupp” pattern needed to be light and springy. For me, it reminds me of Lily of the Valley. I don’t know…. What do you think?

 

Here is the pattern. Written instructions as well as chart, as always.

NOTE: First 3 and last 3 stitches are edge stitches and should be always knit. I didn’t do this on my swatch and the edges started to curl.

* If you want to use this pattern for wider projects (like scarf) then you can repeat the middle part two or three times. That would be part between * * in total of 18 stitches for one repeat.

This was part two for the Mothers Day shawl. I think there would be part three too, before the actual pattern.
