Viking Knit

Post  Tinker on Mon Apr 02, 2012 1:07 pm

I did this whilst I was in France but only just managed to finish it off! I've put on one of my BHB's and have kept the bead in place with some of Julie (Lush)'s fabulous pvc hoops which do the trick marvellously!

I'm giving it to a friend for her birthday I think, haven't quite decided.

Gorgeous! That would be very hard to give away, even to your best friend!

There were some "Viking Knit Kits" at Sandown, but I didn't summon up enough courage to buy one. Yours looks great - it's so even and beautifully finished off.

Thanks guys :-) Pru the upside of giving this particular friend jewellery is that she's a bookeeper that works several offices a week so it gets seen by many magpies :-) Will still hurt to let it go though - was umming and ahhing as this was my first attempt but I think it's good enough to give away.

Elaine I don't have a kit - I just have a clamp, an allen key and 'the' book for inspiration. Plus a drilled piece of wood to pull through which my hubby kindly did for me but if you're really not into that you can get wooden drawplates on Etsy I noticed. I linked some tutorials to the working area of the forum, have a look and see how simple it is to get started!

I've been toying with the idea of getting "the book" and have it bookmarked. Will take another look at the tutorials - thank you!

Elaine the book is good, I didn't make a drawplate like Tinker I got mine from Palmers. Very Happy

That's really good Tink. Lovely and smooth, and well finished. Love the bead too but what are the rings? That's a new thing on me.

They are great, I'm going to get the tubing at flame off as it solves a bracelet problem for my mum.
