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!
