Item details

This listing is for the Viking knit kit with complete 19 piece wire guide set, dowels in 3 different sizes (1/4", 3/8", 1/2" diameter), digital PDF instructions, and enough wire to make a chain for a bracelet.

Wire guides only fit the dowels for which they were designed. We occasionally include extra items as we continue to improve our product.

Draw plate is used to reduce soft or woven chain without marring or scratching the surface when pulled through the holes. Wire guides reduce the time for setting up to create a Viking knit chain, as well as help with setting up and keeping each stitch even.

Perfect tools for pulling through a "Viking Knit"

Draw plate dimensions are approximate and could vary a bit.

5.0" to 6.5" long 2.7" overall width, Grip area 2.25" to 2.75" long 1.5" wide .5 inch thick

Hole sizes are measured in inches and are approximate:
0.395, 0.385, 0.375, 0.365, 0.355, 0.355, 0.345, 0.335, 0.325, 0.315, 0.305, 0.295, 0.285, 0.275
0.265, 0.255, 0.245, 0.235, 0.225, 0.215, 0.205, 0.195, 0.185, 0.175, 0.165, 0.155, 0.145, 0.135

We check each corresponding wire guide for a tight fit with the dowel. We try to ensure correct fit for each one, but sometimes wood expands and contracts depending on humidity. If a wire guide fits loosely on the dowel, a work-around is to place a piece of masking tape around the dowel to ensure a tight fit.

All items are for adult use only. Please keep all items and packaging away from children. Copper, and to a lesser extent brass, can react with skin oils as well as water.

Additionally, resulting chemical changes can break down the metal structure, leading to breakage of your items. As a result, please remove jewelry before going to bed, bathing, showering, etc. You can clean your jewelry to prolong its use and keep it looking new by using copper or brass cleaners 1-3 times per month, depending on your area's humidity. For sterling silver, use silver polish. Always keep your jewelry clean and dry.

Product isn’t made to proper geometrical proportions. Is useless, except for largest dowel. The other 3 have the wire guide holes so far from center, they cannot produce a Viking knit snugged up to the dowel the way Viking knit dowels are supposed to be. That’s the only reason In fact for the dowel, to keep the wire snugged. I am not a newbie to Viking knit. What I was hoping for in this product was a way to make Viking knit in different multiples i.e. 4 & 8 because I haven’t found any other product on the market that offers that. But with only 7 of the 21 wire guide blocks usable & only 1 of the 4 dowels usable, it’s a complete waste of my money. I spent $57.95 for this & waited an entire month for it? HARDLY!!!

Information on Viking knit items:
I make the chain using a technique called Viking knitting. It is based on analysis of chains found that were made by the Vikings, and is more of a weave. The result is similar in appearance to a knitted chain. After weaving the wire, I draw the chain through successively smaller holes in a drawplate until I achieve the size, flexibility and density I'm looking for based on the wire gauge used. The resulting chain is smooth to the touch and flexible to differing extents. The single knitted chains are made from a single piece of wire. The double knitted chains are sometimes woven from either 1 or 2 pieces of wire, depending on length.
