I don't think this one is in our database yet. I found the tut on another site. Here is a sample I made today ...

I looked again and did find it here Viking Knot, there is no real info and not a great photo though.

Yeah, there are countless ways to weave versions of Byzantine. This one has a little bit of Box Chain 4 in 1 too. Smile Because of that, I would personally call this a design using Byzantine rather than a separate weave. But that's just me...

Yeah, when I saw the word "yet" in your OP, then saw the picture, I sighed a bit. This is a design, I agree with lorraine on that. Not a weave.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

Very nice! It's been in the weave library for years. It's easily missed if you're looking for a chain as it was submitted as just a single segment and so was tagged as a unit.

(I also agree with CMB and Lorraine on this that it is a Byzantine design rather than a weave unto itself.)

I was not thinking I had come up with anything new.

I knew it was a byzantine variant design, but I liked it and wanted to share anyway. I have seen plenty of other things out there (and here) that are variations of other weaves.

I am going to make a bracelet and earrings out of it and was going to submit to the gallery when I am done. I will tag it as a byzantine variation Wink

Actually, since Viking Knot does exist as a weave in the database (whether or not it should), it's probably more helpful to tag it as Viking Knot anyway.

And you could also enter it into the current contest!
