Getting Started in Viking Wire Knitting: A Complete Free Video Course

So, you've seen pictures of the lovely wire knitted rope and you want to try making some yourself, but where to start?

No worries, you're in the right place! On my YouTube Channel I have a series of videos geared to helping people do just that.

If you've never picked up a pair of pliers before, I would suggest you watch the following videos first as they will help you with basic skills, tools and information you will need.

Note: my video tutorials are posted for free without annoying advertising pop-ups. I do this on purpose as some people are intimidated by aggressive advertising,  and I want my tutorials to be available to everyone. If you are in a position to show a little appreciation for my work, consider buying me a coffee ☕️ using the link on the home page. If you wish to make items for sale using my tutorials, please credit me as the designer and do not underprice your work!
