Nålbinding Spirals: From Trivets to Hats
Nålbindning is an ancient form of fabric construction that dates back to the Iron and Bronze Ages and was used in many regions of the world. For hundreds of years, Scandinavians have used nålbinding techniques to make hats, socks, milk strainers and mittens. All you need is a single needle with an eye, and yarn that can be felted. In this class, Angela Robins will teach the Oslo and Korgen stitches, and how to nålbind a spiral design by connecting three nålbound chains in the round. Students can make a simple wool trivet or a warm cap depending on their level of experience and time spent outside of class. We will discuss yarn selection for future projects and fulling methods for finishing.
Three 1.5-hour classes. $50
Materials needed: Nålbindning needles, Alafslopi yarn (100g/109 yards)
Although only 100 grams of yarn (approximately 1 skein) is needed to complete a hat, three colors is ideal for this project.
Students can collaborate and share yarn with other students or purchase three skeins of different colors.
