About This Pattern
Often referred to as "finger cuts," Jim Linnell shares the technique and thought processes behind how he creates beautiful designs with nothing more than a swivel knife. These include everything from decorative corners, borders, belt patterns, or even just interesting swivel "doodles."
In the video associated with this pattern, Jim covers this frequently discussed topic and helps students gain confidence, and discover flow, when creating freehand swivel knife designs.
This pattern is the pattern for a roper wallet that Jim demonstrated on in the live class, as well a photo carve of the design created throughout the workshop.
This pattern was originally created to be used with the video workshop Freehand Swivel Knife Designs. We’d love to see what you make from it in our online Facebook group Elktracks Studio Creations.
