Nålbinding is an ancient method of creating textiles with a needle and yarn. Rows of stitches are made with a big, blunt, large-eyed needle, resulting in a firm fabric with a lively surface.
Nålbinding technique dates back thousands of years, but it still has many contemporary uses. This book teaches you several Finnish Iron Age and medieval stitches and gives you a wide selection of instructions to mittens, socks, hats and scarves.
Mervi Pasanen is a Finnish journalist, crafts specialist and an expert in ancient and medieval handicraft techniques.
