What came before knitting, crochet - but probably after felt making?  Why nalbinding (Anglicized Scandinavian term - pronounced nall (rhymes with mall) - bin (like the container)- ding (like the little dent) also spelled: nlbinding, naalbinding

knotting thread/yarn using one chunky needle

here is step one - of a bag completed in the round.

After some fulling - but stopped before reaching felt stage because of wanting the stitches to show.

My first nalbinding project after learning the technique at a Sheep and Wool Festival a few weeks ago.  It is very fun - especially if one likes the more primitive craft forms.  Planning more projects plus exploring the history and techniques.

Thanks for looking.

I think the real word is nlbindNing (we tend to end with ning like the english end with ing)
Bindning is a proper swedish word that means binding Smiley I think it's the same in norweigan and danish about the N before ing.
Your project is really neat, I have to learn this myself some day Cheesy

Appreciate your comments on the pouch.

Thanks for the language info - and now you all see why the explanation is prefaced with "Anglicized"  -- the general info on spelling and pronunciation gleaned from a hard print article by Larry Schmidt

Practice, practice, practice - need lots of practice - it is going to take some time for me to get this down.  Am getting better at starting the chain and at joining it in the round - but still lots of goofs.  And it does not just unravel - this is a knotting technique so hard to undo it.  Here are the goofs


here is a bag ready to full -don't have a photo of the bag alone so you get to see a wrist cuff and headband too.  Wink


and the next bag in the making - just to show the needle in action. 


Can you tell, I'm really liking nalbinding?

Thanks soulsammich, am rather obsessed with it at the moment Smiley so chugging right along.  Do not knit or crochet - am not sure if that helps or hinders.

Have completed the knotting for the pink bag, now to get some photos.

Oh and for those who might like to see this stitch in action found this neat video, which has been very helpful (even though the language is not one I understand - the video is quite clear).  http://www.myvideo.de/watch/96171
