We’re going back. Waaay back. Way back to a month after I started the blog, and the first pattern I self-published.
It’s the Lace-Edged Shawl! (I was pretty literal with my pattern names back then… I’m still not great at naming things, but I like to think I’ve improved a bit.)
This bad boy was my first attempt at writing out a pattern… and holy cow, did that show. So many typos! So many poorly worded sentences! So much incorrect terminology!
So, I’ve rewritten this and fixed a bunch of formatting stuff. It’s amazing how much my pattern-writing has improved over the last three years (if I say so myself)!
You can get the *New and Improved* pattern Lace Edged Shawl-Updated!
HI, this is the first time on your site; looks very interesting. I got the pattern for the palette blanket. What is “nupp” an abbreviation for? Edie
“Nupp” isn’t actually an abbreviation. A nupp is a traditional element of Estonian lace knitting that ends up looking like a little bobble. If you look in the pattern, under the “notes” section, I’ve given instructions on how to work a nupp, but if that isn’t enough, there are plenty of good tutorials on You Tube.
Hope that helps!
