Many stitches are known by their common names, which are often taken from the first extant find. However, there have been several to create nålebinding notations.

The notation developed by Hansen is probably the easiest notation to understand. Hansen uses U for under, and O for over when the work is viewed flat, plus additional notation for joining stitches to a previous round.

   F= Join from the front, e.g. F2 join to the previous row by going through 2 stitches from the front
   B= join from the back

There are also notations by Hald and Nordland, but these are not as comprehensive.
