Knotless knitting may seem a primitive technique in terms of materials and tools, but there are numerous variations. The loops of yarn that are picked up on the thumb during each row can be changed, the needle may be moved over and under one loop or under and over two, three or more loops. These variations give a texture with varying impermeability, depending on their use. In view of the climate in Sweden, it was common to make knotless mittens, also called sewn mittens. Socks were also made with this technique, and in old times filter cloths used for screening milk. There were a number of names for knotless knitting in different dialects around Sweden.
