July 2011 Project Update

Viking Knit Bracelet

Hello Everyone,

I messed up on the viking weave supply list. You need 10 yards of 24 gage (not 18 to 20 gage) for July and 12 to 20″ of 22 gage (not 24 gage) for August. I’m so sorry! Below is a corrected supply list.

Corrected Supply List:

Approximately 10 yards of 24 gage dead soft wire (Artistic Wire is recommended) or sterling silver wire

1/2″ wooden dowel

Awl

Nylon jaw pliers

For August:

2 -End Cones (sterling or plated, your choice)

1 – large focal bead of your choice

1 -Clasp of your choice

12 to 20″ – 22 gage craft or sterling wire (used to finish bracelet)
