Always wanted to learn this ancient art??? There are many sites on the internet with "free" instructions for Viking Knit - but you get what you pay for. Having struggled with several sets of these "instructions" before I had my "ah ha" moment, I knew there was room for one more tutorial. Other tutorials exist with other methods of working this ancient technique, but we believe that our tutorial is the easiest to follow, with 49 illustrations and 25 pages of step-by-step instructions. The method taught in our tutorial is the "5 loop method." It's a great way to learn, but not the only way to knit. Feel free to experiment with 6 loops, 7 loops, 4 loops, whatever you like. These instructions are intended to teach you the basic Viking Knit technique. What you make with your Viking Knit is up to you! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic Pattern None Necessary SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Whatever length you like!
