Project and Sample by Kate Richburg
We are revisiting this Kate Classic…actually it’s a Kate Signature! Kate herself 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 time of the Vikings, used in jewelry and as decorative trim.
Learn this incredible stitch and create a bracelet worthy of a Viking warrior woman.
In this sample, Kate shows how to create jewelry using smaller sections of Viking Knit, all set off by a gorgeous Swarovski focal bead. Stunning!
In addition to the ingredients listed here you’ll also need a few items from home: painter’s tape, a piece of cardstock (about 2”) and a wooden dowel (about .5” in diameter).
Find ingredient quantities for listed above for easy shopping, and find our other samples here.
