Beginning Nalbinding: Mammen Stitch
Thursday, October 14, 2021
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EDT)

The Mammen stitch is a very common variant of nalbinding used from Egypt to Scandinavia. This class will give you a hands on introduction to the technique.  We will cover starting, pivoting into the spiral, connecting to the previous row, and increases/decreases.

Students will not be able to complete a project, but will leave with a solid understanding of how to start and the skills needed to build a project.

Supplies Students Need
1. 1 skein/ball of worsted weight single ply wool/blend in a light, but not white color. I recommend Lamb's Pride Worsted in either Oatmeal or Silver, but most of the lighter colors will do. A bright variegated yarn with short variegations would also be acceptable.
2. A #13 Tapestry needle or a bent tip darning needle. If using a purchased nalbinding needle, ensure that it is of an even diameter of no more than 4mm with a large eye and a blunted, but not too blunt tip.
