Nålbinding Mittens

Course Overview

Nålbinding, similar to but far older than knitting or crochet, is a way to make a looped-structure fabric with a single needle. Nålbound mittens are valued for warmth and practicality and in this workshop you'll learn nålbinding, as well as the basics of shaping a Scandinavian-style "work" mitten. A variety of finishing techniques will be demonstrated, and time will be devoted to the folklore surrounding nålbinding. Lesson materials, needle, and an appropriate amount of yarn for the first samples are provided. You will also have the opportunity to make your own needles.
