It’s the crochet chain Alam Revere has in his book. He teaches it
also in his classes. It is extremely easy and less hassle than doing
the viking knit. You only need a stylus, and cutter to cut lengths to
crochet and a pair of pliers to pull it taut. I know Vasken and
Rhonda know it. I use to do it on the Bart Train into the East bay,
and had audiences of people fascinated with what I was doing. I have
ropes of it hanging around that i will cut to length for a new
necklace. The last step after the final annealing is to run it like a
shining cloth over a shoe, over a steel bracelet mandrel. the more
you work it over the mandrel the more flexible it gets.
It is simple and fun to do. I can do at least 2 feet before drawing
down, while watching a movie. Find a copy of Alan’s goldsmithing
book, and have a go at it.
