  • What kind of stitch is this nålbinding made out of?

  • Nålebinding is called knotless netting in english, you can watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10xNxH_Itxs to see it demonstrated or read this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%A5lebinding

  • Benedicte, I'm afraid that is not a helpful answer. Needlebinding [what I prefer to call it] can have many varying stitch types due to many different factors in the creation process, of course also resulting in varying texture, thickness etc in the finished fabric.

    Please see this WIP index for instance:

    Perhaps one can cross-reference Odd Norland's book Primitive Scandinavian Textiles in Knotless Netting, which lists some milk strainer finds including ones from Gudbrandsdalen (p.46). He does list type of stitch used for the respective find (according to his classification system, yes, there are more than one as you can see in the index above ;)). But he used a different labelling system for finds, than the system used for this find. So is this a new find or simply a re-labelled one? Might there be some kind of museum back-log on location for checking that?

    Otherwise, me and many others would be very grateful for a closeup photo of this milk strainer, to better see the stitch textures and possibly resolve the stitch type question that way :)
