There is still no board for naalbinding, and being a knitter I post here. I learned naalbinding about six months ago, and this is my first hat. A gift for my friend, the medieval geek. There are several ways to naalbind, and I don't really know exactly which stitch this is. The yarn is Trollgarn from www.ull.no

As worn by my window.

An attempt show the difference between the inside and the outside (there isn't really any given inside or outside, whichever you wear out is a matter of taste).

I tried naalbinding once, but I just couldn't seem to figure it out.  But then again, this was before I had even knit my first stitch - I used to be strictly a sew-er.
But nicely done!

Looks great! I am in love the texture of the fabric.
I'm not really sure what naalbinding is, but because of your awesome hat, I'm googling it right now!

I'm a nose and a smelly one at that.

naalbinding looks really difficult.  Is it?

Ah, another nalbinder! Yeah! I think your friend will be very happy to wear this hat on any medieval occasion, it looks perfectly historical (it reminds me of the hat of St. Simeon which was pointed too), and your stitching is very good. I think that's an Oslo stitch, by the way, very good for making a tight weatherproof fabric. I use it for purses for the same reason.
If you want to support a nalbinding / historic craft board on craftster, you can leave a comment here:

@graciedoo: search nalbinding here on craftster, the nalbinding posts have useful links and explanations. 

@nosierosie: No, it's not that difficult - once you've had the technique go "click" in your head, you can just craft on. I admit that the "click" takes some trying and explaining. Smiley But basically it's needle and thread, much like sewing. You don't need to fear it.
