Näshulta is one of the three stitches mentioned in the year book 2011 of the Swedish Södermanland's Local History Society. 

In the book it says to make the first row, foundation row, at the mitten top using Brodén Stitch, and then continue using Näshulta Stitch. 

In this nalbinding stitch there are 2 thumb loops at the beginning, the upper one is picked up from back to front, and then 3 other loops from behind the thumb are picked up. Connection stitch is F2.
