Since learning to nålbind a few months ago, my ambition has been to create Viking socks to wear with my Norse clothing at SCA events. After a few unsuccessful attempts with two ply knitting yarn (so many little stitches!) I started over with thick wool roving. It was amazing to watch cozy slippers seem to magically appear beneath my needle.
After binding a “ladder” around the back of the foot, the heel worked up easily in a circular shape. This is the Oslo Stitch.
These are the coziest slippers I’ve ever worn!
