Nalbinding- Oslo & York as Stitches

tools for nalbinding
cap made of nalbinding
NÃ¥lbinding is a "fabric-making" technique of using wool yarn in sections, "stitching" into shape. Sometimes mistaken for knitting, it was used in pre-modern times for caps, mitts, and socks. In this class, we will learn the versatile Oslo stitch, working from a strip into a shape, and the denser York stitch, working from the center and out. More stitches, joins, and tips will be shared as time allows. There will be discussion on techniques for using non-wool yarn.
