This nålbinding round-start tutorial illustrates one method for casting stitches onto a loop. Want to nålbind top down hats, and toe-up socks? Make a flat medallion for pot-holders, or work mittens from the fingertips? This is a great way to start them!

An anthropology student at Camosun College commissioned two 12cmx12cm nålbinding samples for an archaeology project she is doing.

Needing Oslo and Coptic stitches in two-ply, S-twist wool (which she found was the most common fibre used in the time period she is studying), she plans to test them for water and wind resistance to theorize about why one stitch was commonly used in Iceland and the other was used in Egypt.

I hope she shares her findings!

Anya Gonzalezsuper cooll! As an archaeologist myself, it makes me happy that craftsmen and academia are working together to figure out how ancient tecnology and crafts worked. By the way, where did you get that acorn tape measurer?4 weeks ago   ·  3

Nålbound hat commission for Sir Guy in our medieval society, who wrote:

"I commissioned a hand-made hat, white with green trim, (the colors of my charge). I received my hat at Ursalmas, and though I did not win the tourney, I none-the-less walked out with the greater prize - my beautiful hat, hand made by Duchess Meagan. She even included a beautifully decorated leather draw-string bag for my wife! Yup! I won Ursalmas this year. Got the hat to prove it!

Sir Guy Grimsson

Thank you, Sir Guy! I look forward to seeing a photo of you wearing it!
