A summary of some of the Nalbinding stitches: York, Oslo, Mammen,
Nalbinding starts with a chain stitch. Here is one method of making the foundation chain.
Thread the nalbinding needle with 2-5 meters of wool yarn.
Tie a loose loop at one end.
Pinch this loop between your thumb and forefinger.
Wrap the wool yarn around your thumb twice.
Pick up the loop that is behind your thumb and pass the needle through the two loops that are on your thumb.
Pull the yarn through all of the loops, wrapping the yarn around your thumb again to begin the next loop.
Pick up the old loop that is on your thumb, and the first loop that is now behind your thumb.
Turn the needle and pass the needle through the 2 loops that are on your thumb.
Pick up 1 stitch from the previous row.
