    The Viking knit is formed around one of the mandrels, so you do not need an additional tool to knit around.

    Chain nose pliers
    • Round nose pliers
    • Wire cutters
    • Flat nose pliers
    Tape measure

    I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Abby,
    I got your book a while back and have been adapting your ideas and techniques to make my own designs, I love your designs. I would like the Oak drawplate with the Copper wire please with the viking knit chain kit i have just ordered. I couldn’t find a list of other woods so looked on Pauls site? Probably couldn’t see the wood for the trees…..lol. Looking forward to getting the kit. Keep up the great inspiration Regards Alison

    Hi Alison

    I am so pleased to hear that you are enjoying the book and that you are having fun adapting the techniques!

    Thank you for letting me know what you would like in your kit. I will take your copper wire and Oak drawplate to the post office this morning, so hopefully you will have it soon.

    Love the pun - I am sure you were looking in the right place, I am a bit behind with getting the latest listings on and so there are not many drawplates on my site at the moment, glad you were able to find them on Paul’s site :)

    Best wishes

    So pleased to have found your website and the superb quality of your work, and the tools made by your partner Paul. I make Decorative knots with cord for jewellery, but the Viking weave with wire looks just up my street too! Will be ordering very soon!! It’s always a pleasure to explore something new.
