Viking Knit Woven Chain Tutorial


Also called Viking Weave or Viking Chain, this is constructed by weaving wire around a mandrel and is finished by pulling it through a draw plate and adding cones for a professional finish. The chain style is based on ancient Viking and Indian patterns and is perfect for making a cord for bracelets and necklaces. Instructions include making an asymmetrical bangle. This is one of the most comprehensive tutorials on Viking Knit available, and I have listed a few comments below from people who have purchased this one.
