NOT good for 'patterns'. The hats mittens and socks I made turned out very differently than the intended size and shape- for me the flat topped hats came out domed, the long pointed had came out short pointed and with a ruffled brim. Socks were asymmetrical and seem to rely very heavily on felting to close holes left by increases and shape to foot.
More emphasis needs to be placed on the fact that nalbinding patterns can only be rough guides that must be adapted on the fly as your own stitching style and yarn characteristics shape the project.
Excellent basic guide. Good history, even if sources cited are hard to find. Patterns not reliable as they are, but good as a starting point/ you have to follow your instincts when things look too full or not big enough to fit after felting.
I have since then found two books, one with color pictures and the other will clear illustrations, easy to follow, but they only teach one stitch other than casting-on and the beginning chain.
This book does demonstrate five commonly used stitches: Oslo, York, Korgen & Mammen, Daley, and Broken stitches.
If you are new to nalbinding, I think you will benefit by investing in this book.
I have struggled, but determined!! I hope this has helped you find an additional way of creating fabric.
The Oslo Stitch
The York Stitch
The Korgen and Mammen Stitches
