Knitting with Wire

Knitting with wire is becoming wildly popular among knitters as well as beadworkers, wireworkers, and jewelry makers. The author, Nancie M. Wiseman, has researched the history of this unusual technique and developed, through trial and error, the how-tos for making your own knitted projects with wire. After learning the basics of wire knitting, you can try your hand at one of the 30 exciting and innovative projects to knit by hand, machine or using the Viking technique (without needles). Projects range from the simple to the more complex and are accompanied by clear directions and illustrations. Complete descriptions of tools and techniques, embellishing with beads, and how to make findings and finishes for your projects are also included. With only some basic knitting skills you can create beautiful and unique projects with wire including necklaces, bracelets, baskets, beaded purses, and much more! Knitting with Wire is the second book in Interweave's technique series, following the wildly popular Domino Knitting.
