Not only are there 3 different styles of knitting spools available (3-peg, 4-peg and 5-peg) but there are several different ways to knit on each spool. I've learned 3 variations.

  4. good tutorial. I am thinking the new bright color soft flex wires will rock with this method. I love using 28g SS wire and doing this method and then pulling it through a draw plate to tighten it up.

  8. Can you pull it through a drawplate with using the soft flex?

    Your work is beautiful and the tutorial easy to understand.

  9. When taken through a drawplate, the Soft Flex will just spring back out again. If you knit with Artistic Wire, you can pull it through a drawplate and it will pull the chain thinner.

    I'm so glad that the tutorial is easy to understand. :)

  11. By coincidence I have picked up my spool after putting together a load of hand-crafted Christmas gifts as a break in the pace. I am making some bracelets with beads as you illustrate, but am also doing some necklaces to use my polymer jumbo cabochons.
