I would really appreciate some advice re Viking Knit/Weave. I’ve now
made a few chains in SP wire and copper, and feel confident enough to
progress to 26g Fine Silver or DS Argentium. The question is, which?
I love the shine on Fine Silver but normally just ball it for
headpins etc. I worry that it might not be serviceable enough for
Viking Knit, especially being drawn through the drawplate, or might
be otherwise unsuitable. I need to make some single knit chains of
various lengths, some incorporating beads. I usually work with about
3 metres of wire at a time to minimise joins.
I’ve searched through the old posts, but can’t find the necessary
I hope one of you good people can help.
