Nut stitch makes us a bit funny! How lovely is that little ball that decorates without disturbing!
A very common element of traditional Aran and classical relief knitted motifs the nut stitch can have different dimensions and many ways to be made. It’s usually made on a stockinette basis, and nuts are usually staggered for a more dynamic result. You’d better not use the nut stitch on the back of a sweater: this might be inconvenient if you sit leaning your back. Even on the sleeves, it would be better to make the nuts on the outer part and not in the internal one, and even better would be to put in only from the wrist to the forearm. Higher up is only uncomfortable!
Unlike the bubble point, the nuts emerge in all their majesty making garments so elegant. They can be knitted or crocheted. Start your work making a stockinette stitch, then follow the pattern to build up your nuts!
Let’s learn and become addicted. Have fun!
