HOW TO: During the Viking-age (793-1066 AD) knitting and crochet were unknown in Scandinavia, so they used another very effective and very old method: nalbinding. Nalbinding is a method of creating a stretchy textile using short lengths of yarn and a single-eyed needle. Fabric is formed by looping the yarn through at least two previously created loops, gradually building up row upon row of loops. Nalbinding predates both knitting and crochet by at least 2000 years.
