Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Astrid is an old Norse name meaning “divine beauty,” and how accurate a description for this divine piece!

Not just a Kate Classic…a Kate Signature! Kate pioneered this method of making Viking Knit, an ancient wire weaving technique used by…you guessed it, the Vikings! Examples of this beautiful wirework have been found in archeological digs in Scandinavia and the British Isles dating back to the tome of the Vikings, used in jewelry and as decorative trim.
Learn this incredible stitch and create a bracelet worthy of a Viking warrior woman. Tune in for Free Tip Friday on Friday, April 27th to learn how to antique this wire with Liver of Sulphur.
