*peers, googlewhacks, peers some more*

Some guy made the case that the holes in it are not because someone got stabbed while wearing it, because it's not really a cloak at all--it's a star map, proven by the patterns the holes make.

*throws the text of the article through Google's translation whoozit*

The thing they're calling rundväv would, in English, be called "weaving on a circular warp" (or a "continuous" warp). This (and the PDF says as much) makes a tube, although the author of the PDF doesn't know how you'd get a nigh-circular ellipse out of such a technique.

Sagadís/Melodi/Mrs. Kveldulf might know; I'll shoot her a line. I also have a Swede on tap if I need a more precise translation.
