Estonian Lace Swatches

These pretty little swatches are from the Estonian lace book Pitsilised Koekirjad (ISBN 9985-54-016-6), described here. They are samples for a possible reprint. Notice the middle one's nupps--a hefty P8tog. Perfectly easy if you use this technique. Knitted in white Zephyr with #3 needles.

Wow! Breathtaking!

I plan to try my hand at lacework for the first time in 2007 - this is definitely inspirational stuff.

I really love the way the first swatch undulates back and forth.

I'll still pass on the nupps. :)

Those are so beautiful! I think I might suffer through k8tog if that's the effect you get. p8togtbl would give me pause, though!

Dear Fleegle,

Beautiful Lace. I have the patternf or the Estonian Garden Wrap but I haven't gotten to that one with all the other projects in hand. Your exmples of Estonian lace patterns are beautiful. I hope there is translation for those books sometime soon.
