National Knitting Night: Copying Wrist Warmer


#1

Hi, all. I’m watching the Norwegian National Knitting Night on Netflix and I’m obsessed with Vigdis’s wrist warmers. So of course I want to recreate them! I think it looks like i-cord sewn into a coil shape. It looks like a coarse wool that would hold its shape. Maybe a fingering weight? Thoughts or advice? Thanks!

Ooooooh, or is it needle binding?


#3

It looks a little like Latvian braids, I think… or on second thought maybe not. Yes, it does look like a bulky weight yarn. I wonder if it’s a simple K1P1 rib? I do like the look!

I can see the similarity to stacked braids, but I would guess that it is some version of the herringbone stitch.


#5

It looks like nålebinding or needle binding to me. It’s thought to be older than knitting! Here is one example: https://www.instructables.com/id/Needle-Binding-Wrist-Warmers/

There are many results in a search for nålebinding or nålbinding. Try it!
