Purple Haze

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!


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
