  I would be happy to teach Sprang--*Sprang* is an ancient method of 
constructing fabric <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fabric> that has a 
natural elasticity. Its appearance is similar to netting 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_%28textile%29>, but unlike netting 
sprang is constructed entirely from warp 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warp_%28weaving%29> threads. 
Archaeological <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaeology> evidence 
indicates that sprang predates knitting 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knitting>; the two needlework 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needlework> forms bear a visible 
resemblance and serve similar functions but require different production 
techniques. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprang)

and naalbinding, the Oslo stitch--*Nålebinding* (Danish 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danish_%28language%29>: literally "binding 
with a needle" or "needle-binding", also *naalbinding*, *nålbinding* or 
*naalebinding*) is a fabric creation technique predating both knitting 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knitting> and crochet 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crochet>. Also known in English as 
"knotless netting," "knotless knitting," ^[1] 
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%A5lebinding#endnote_Wills1> or 
"single needle knitting.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nalbinding)
