Kuusk was made from my first truly usable handspun yarn: pure merino, spun into a single of lace weight thickness and gently fulled. I have a lovely wheel now, but this yarn was a practice of patience on my 18g oak top whorl spindle, and I'm so happy I got to do something so special with it. I wanted an interesting Estonian lace pattern to show off the texture of the yarn while making it open enough so that the slightly thick-thin texture wouldn't overpower the design. Big needles and a sloping edging help achieve these goals.
It only takes about 220 yards of lace weight yarn (Malabrigo lace is a very good sub in case you don't have any suitable handspun of your own), and the pattern is, of course, free, so go knit, and enjoy!
