Using only two elements, an awl and sterling wire, we will explore the technique of fashioning a rope out of metal. This self-supported “knitted” form is flexible and comfortable to wear. It also offers a terrific surface for easy embellishment. This Viking Knit is not done on a dowel or an allen wrench. Iris teaches it unsupported which lends itself to more freeform work.

Total Class Running Time: 54 minutes.

Great class! I liked the thoroughness of explanation on every aspect from the tools to the different awls and steel brush. I especially loved how you added the beads and ended the bracelet.. I plan to make more Viking knit bracelets. You made it less scary. Since this class is Viking Knit 1, will there be a 2? I hope so!
