Viking knitting is an ancient method of weaving wire that is deceptively simple in concept, and yet can be challenging to master. This tutorial is not so much about one project, but is more about comprehensive instruction on the basic technique. Unlike most tutorials currently available, this is exceedingly rich in photographs of each step. Not only do I present the basics (starting a chain, working the stitches, methods for joining in new wire), but I also discuss (and show) how to handle the wire, deal with mistakes, how to make a drawplate, and two ways to finish the ends of chains. Plus there is an earring project that works up quickly while allowing you to practice the technique!
