Description

Nalbinding swirls scarf pattern in 23 page PDF with images of every step. Inspired by images of Von Karman vortices when islands stick up into low clouds at sea. Surprise your friends and family with this lovely, quick to make handmade scarf for Christmas or birthdays. The gratification of completing each simple swirl is quite addictive.

Level: Intermediate. Need to know Finnish 2+2 stitch -> 2 on thumb and 2 behind. (Hansen notation for the stitch: UUOO/UUOOO)

Requirements:
- Worsted or aran weight yarn 100-150 yds (gradient or varying shade yarns work terrific with this pattern)
- Finnish stitch 2+2
- Nalbinding needle
- Enough concentration to be able to count up to 35

About the Technique:
Much of nalbinding is thick and bulky to create warm items like socks, mittens and hats. It’s beautiful in it’s own way. But there are so many limits to be explored and played with in this craft. During her exploration, the author created a new technique she calls ‘open structure work’ with interconnected sections that look airy and lacy, yet show off the unique structure and properties of the wonderful ancient craft of nalbinding.

Nalbinding is an ancient textile craft that predates knitting. (Think Roman Empire and Viking Age times). It uses loops and knots to form the fabric. The fabric produced is thick and durable and it does not unravel. Nalbinding is great for hats, mittens and socks. I've seen it used to make sweaters, ponchos, and shawls too.

FAQs

I do my best to exhaust my dye and carefully rinse my yarn and fiber afterward. But please be aware that very saturated colorways may have a bit of color run when washing, this is not bleeding (when the dye isn't bound to the fiber), and will rinse out without loss of color. It's common for colors with some of the magenta, turquoise and black dyes. I mix my own colors so these colors may be present in the dye mixtures.
