This piece is perfect for BOTH men and women! I wear Viking knit (I am a woman) and I am planning to make one for a male friend of mine. Perfect for a wide variety of people. Healers, SCA members, Followers of the Northern Pantheon (Heathen, Odinist, Asatru) and more. A lovely piece that large beads, etc can easily be added to.
Viking knitting is a type of chain making done by hand and really was used by the Medieval Norse! I used 26 gauge wire and HAND WOVE every single loop. It takes anywhere from three days (working ALL the time) to a week or so to get 30 yards woven and it generally only creates about a yard or so of workable material after (even less with double weave!). This was a work of heart and determination!
The bracelet 7 1/2 measures approximately inches long as a whole. It is made using brass wire and other antiqued brass materials. This is a single weave.
