My First Naalbinding Hat

My first naalbound hat using my oak needle   I continue to be fascinated with this centuries old and almost forgotten technique.   I have learned today that this stitch is called the Korgen stitch.  It is one of my favorites.  The mitten I made turned out really bad..grin  So … no pics!  But I will try again since I think I have figured out what caused the mess.  I can only hope that other people will cultivate an interest in this almost lost art of naalbinding…

  1. Hi, I have just discovered the joy of naalbinding. I have made a few socks and just made myself a nice hat . . . promptly taken by my son to use as an arming cap under his helmet !! It must be good ; ).

    Love your stuff.
