You will often find this stitch in lace or when there is a need for a little decoration.

It can be done in different ways depending if you want to get a huge or a small nupp, with or without a crochet hook.

How to knit Nupps?


First way




1. On the RS row, work to the place where you plan to make a nupp.

2. Make a nupp as follows: knit the next stitch, but don't drop the stitch, *make a yarn over, knit one stitch more in the same stitch* (repeat from * to * once or two or three times etc.) - in this case you repeat twice more. You get 7 stitches into one.

The more usual nupps are made with 7 stitches but sometimes, you could make them with 5 or 11 stitches.

3. Insert your left needle from left to right through all these stitches and pull the thread through them.

4. And you get a nupp.

Second way



1. On the RS row, work to the place where you plan to make a nupp.

2. Put the stitch on a crochet hook.

3. Make 7 sts on your crochet hook as in the knitted way (see above)

4. Make a yarn over, pull the thread into 5 sts. You have 3 sts on your crochet.

5. Make a yarn over and pull it into the 3 sts, You have 1 st on your crochet.

6. Put this stitch on your right needle

7. And you get a nupp
