Nancy Bush is a scholar on the history of Estonian knitting and works to create fresh new designs that incorporate historic motifs and patterns from her research.

In this scarf she pairs a lace “Stone” pattern (eyelet diamonds) alongside columns of Estonian nupps to achieve a textured vertical stripe. The scarf is trimmed at each end with a decorative garter stitch edging.
