" So, I've decided to share my technique in photos, a lovely viking knit bracelet from beginning to end. Lovely handmade chains have been found in Viking treasure troves in Scandinavia. Made from melted down coins turned into fine wire, these chains were made using a loop in loop technique. Talk about wearing your wealth! These same techniques can be used today, though we don't tend to use coin silver anymore. To begin, use some cheap craft wire. Wrap the four loops together into a little bundle and then cut off the excess craft wire.

Open up the four loops like a flower. I like to use knitting needles as my core, but you can use any regularly shaped mandrel. Take the long end of the wire, and move to your next petal to the left. Cross the long end of the wire over the top, making another loop. The technique shown here is what is called single knit. When you reach the end of your piece of wire, tuck the short end under when completing the loop. Snake Ring - A Wire Wrap Tutorial. Easy Beaded Solitaire Ring - A wire wrap tutorial. ProjectPDF.php.
