Beads vs Nupps

A Nupp is a bobble like stitch found in Estonia lace patterns. It is found in many lace patterns, but is also often replaced by beads. I did just that in this Swallowtail shawl, knitted using Knit Picks Gloss lace yarn in Ultramarine.

Crochet Cast Off

Here are 2 shawls that both have a crochet cast off. It is a very quick cast off that gives a shawl a nice stretchy edge.

Here is Luiza, knitting using 633.6 yards of Knit Picks Gloss lace yarn.

Haruni knit using 637.6 yards of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal fingering yarn.
