Arlene Woods presents
Viking Knit Earrings

 

Viking Knitting dates all the way back to, well, the Vikings. Handmade chains were found in Viking treasure troves in Scandinavia. Made from melted down coins turned into a continuous, fine wire, these chains were formed using a loop in loop technique. Basically, the Vikings literally wore their treasure!

Modern Viking knit makes the most of all the latest developments in wire production. In this workshop, you’ll be making a lovely, capped pair of earrings with a crystal accent. Acquire a new skill or hone those you already have! Arlene will guide you through the process.
