About this design:

I finally designed a viking knit bracelet! Don't know why I made such a short piece - and it sat on my table waiting for inspiration. You know how it is...pieces sit next to each other, and then draw themselves together!

Components:

Purple soft flex wire (for VK and handmade cones), Czech glass rondelles, and a button!

    This is so cool!!!!! I tried VK recently- got the end piece made – no problemo, then couln’t quite figure out the starter row – Found a tut on Youtube, which explained everything except the starter row. Went back to French knitting. KH

    Sue!!! What a stunning bracelet — great colors, mix of textures, and the cones & clasp are fab!!! :D

    Shorter pieces of Viking knit work great in bracelets and as earrings! :D
