Flowerbed Crescent - PDF knitting pattern
The Flowerbed Crescent features a distinctive lace pattern with flowers and flower buds all over. The Crescent is worked bottom up in one piece. The pattern contains nupps, double nupps and gathered stitches well known in Estonian lace knitting. Choose a natural wool fibre for crisp blocking and best results. Repeats were worked 16 times per row. Finished measurements after wet blocking: centre depth 51 cm / 20’’, top edge 120 cm / 47’’. For a shorter/narrower or longer/wider crescent work less or more repeats. All measurements are approximate due to stretchy quality of lace.
