Danish nålebinding, literally "needle-binding".

Examples

  • Actually, the very first hit that comes up on google search when typing "nalebinding needle" is a shop that sells different needles and bodkins well suited for the technique.

    Book talk - Mary C. Beaudry: Findings

  • There are large numbers of rather large, eyed needles made from wood, bone or antler that are perfectly well suited to work nalebinding, and needles are actually made again and sold again for that purpose today, since the technique has seen a revival in LH circles.

    Book talk - Mary C. Beaudry: Findings

  • Maybe even worse, nalebinding and knitting are technically so different from each other that stating one as the variant of the other is absolutely misleading to the novice while quite apt to boil the blood of a textile person - and severe mistakes like this do cast doubt on the general reliability of a book.

    Book talk - Mary C. Beaudry: Findings

  • She is right however in that to my knowledge no needles have been proven to have been used for nalebinding.

    Book talk - Mary C. Beaudry: Findings

  • She taught me the Oslo and York stitch for nalebinding. the next dance practice that I go to she has told me she will teach me the Mammen stitch:)
