Nupp help!

I've googled nupp stitch but can't really find anything helpful. Can someone out there help me figure out how to do a nupp stitch? How come I can't find a vid of someone getting their nupp on?

  • it's a simple bobble. I don't have the pattern on me, but I remember the instructions were listed somewhere in the pattern. knit front, back, front, back and front (so you are making five stitches from one) and on the reverse side you purl those five together back into one stitch.

  • Is this article helpful? It explains the how and the why of nupps.

  • And it seems like others have blogged about nupp problems! And She Knits Too had problems with nupps when she made Madli's shawl, and she posted a nice list:
