Double Viking Knit


About this design:

I took a class last weekend to learn Double Viking Knit, I had so much fun and I can't wait to practice this technique. I wasn't able to finish the project until yesterday because I didn't have a draw plate to complete the magic. I finished off my bracelet this morning and couldn't wait to show all of you lovely people. I am not sure about the beads that I have selected for the bracelet, but this one is for me so I will be on the lookout for more big holed beads.

    IMHO in my honest opinion.
    I just learned the Viking knit and it looks easy and isn’t, IMHO! I also learned to “double ” it but I’m not sure if that is what you guys are talking about..I’m still working on mine!
    Yours is wonderful!!
