Vanilla Bean,
I just bought your Viking knit Technique Tutorial Pattern, and it looks wonderful. I love all the pictures! This helps so much.
I have one question about finishing. One end of the viking knit is all loops, but the other end still has one tail end. What do you do with that tail end? I realize you cut it off, but how short should it be, and do you try to tuck it into the center of the viking knit before finishing the end with the wire/wrapped loops? Thanks!

Hi. Sorry I've been slow to answer your question. The bracelet addendum is provided at the end of the tutorial to give you the general steps to turn your Viking Knit into a bracelet. It goes step by step to make the bracelet, it does not teach a wrapped loop or clasp making. If you need to know how to make a wrapped loop you can find instructions on the internet on many sites or in magazines in the basic techniques section. Also, you can make a clasp for your bracelet or buy one that you like to complete the project. If you use hard wire to put through the middle of your bracelet you can even wear it without a claps, just make the loops on the ends so the wire says in place.
Hope this helps!
Mary

Over the weekend I tried to find this at home on my iPad. Can this we accessed through the mobile application? If so, where/how?

The tutorial is a pdf download, so you should be able to open it on an iPad or whatever.

Do you have the pattern for the homemade drawplate, or is there another here on craftsy?

I just looked and didn't see anything besides the pdf. Was I not looking in the right place?

This looks very impressive. I have never knitted. Will I need to understand basic knitting terms and techniques or will I be perfect for this tutorial.

No I love to do Viking Knit and couldn't knit to save my life.

OK, this is beautiful, but really...it's a novice level? Easy for a beginner?

So glad you are featuring Kimihumo!!! I have been doing this for 10 years and most people have never heard of it. I have always done it with beads in necklaces and bracelets. DiB

Maybe Craftsy will have a class on Kumihimo. I haven't done it in a while and still have my marudai. I would like to freshen up on it again and start creating with it.

Kumihimo is very popular again. My tutorial is very basic and uses a foam loom. I also have a tutorial that uses beads and is also a very basic entry level introduction to the art.

Comming from Denmark, it is sort of a national pride thing to be interested to make. I saw a demonstration and bought a pattern at the Viking Musum in Roskilde DK. It was very primitive, but my son who like crochet hemp necklaces made one and except for it being sort of loose it looked just fine. Your pattern sound so much more easy and complete. I am going to give it a try this time.
