Kuurankukat ovat kauneudenkaipuisen tuplalapaset: alus- ja päällislapaset neulotaan erikseen ja puetaan päällekkäin. Aluslapaset ovat paksut ja lämpimät ja ne neulotaan kaksinkertaisella langalla. Päällislapasiin otetaan lanka yksinkertaisena ja neulotaan sillä herkkää pitsiä. Ranneosa neulotaan tasona ja yhdistetään pyöröneuleeksi kiilalisäysten alussa.
