Guest Tutorial Post by Judy Larson

Judy is right when she said, "Most Viking Knit tutorials just tell how to create the knit, but not what to do with it."  So she wrote one - the most complete Viking Knit tutorial I have seen. That's because she also included how to make the clasp, coiled end caps AND the draw plate.  Some people might not have these so it is helpful to have the directions to make your own.

Coiled End Caps

She is also modest as she added, " My tutorial is OK but one of the best is the one by Gail Nettles" Perhaps readers can be the judge of that!  (Update : Judy found it on Scribd but it is a paid tutorial on Gail's site)

Both Judy and Gail twist the wire ends together, something I don't do - see my past tutorial on How to Make Viking Knit Jewelry which illustrates how to add new wire.  I shall try that the next time I make a Viking Knit bracelet.
