    Viking Knit Part 1: Single Knit

    By: Katrina Lum Designs

    Viking knit is the oldest form of jewelry making known to date. Examples have been found at archaeological sites across the globe, but pieces found at a site in Scandinavia are responsible for this technique’s namesake. Viking knit is not actually a form of knitting at all, and the process is much closer to naelbinding (think about those little plastic mushroom looking tools you probably made yarn cords with as a kid). It’s an easy technique to learn, but is very time consuming when compared to most other chain-making techniques.
