October Workshop

Our own patsy monk will be teaching us Viking Knit.  The lesson started at the meeting on October 10th.  If you missed it, you can still enjoy learning/doing Viking Knit!  If you don't already have the equipment, patsy will be selling kits for $15.00.  The kits will include:

  • 1 marked dowel
  • 1 popular draw plate with 3 holes & room for other sizes 
  • "T" pin 
  • Foam for pulling
  • 18 feet of 24g copper wire

(NOTE:  As awl can be used instead of a "T" pin and nylon tipped pliers can be used instead of the foam piece).


The most suggested wire to use is 24g, which can be found at Michael's or Joann's.  If you cannot find it, 22g or 26g will work.  Colors are great, but can be scraped off when pulling the piece through the draw plate. Copper and black are popular choices, along with gold and silver.  

The magic occurs when you pull your "knitted" piece through a draw plate!  Of course, you can shape it by hand, but the draw plate creates a more uniform chain.
