Persian Dragonscale - Another Method
Article © MAIL User: Corvus

ChaosSeraphim's tutorial (Persian Dragonscale - Weaving and Joining) is great but I learned Persian Dragonscale by another method, so here it is.

I'm using 1mm wire 5mm ID rings

First make 2 chains of Half Persian 3 in 1, there is a tutorial for this in the 'Weaves' section.
Make one chain running left to right and one running right to left, like this:

Make them as long as you want the finished piece.

Turn one chain around and lay them on their sides then start to 'stitch' them up European 4 in 1 style like this:

Keep going till you reach the end:

Turn it over and 'stitch' up the other side:

Keep going to the end:

And you're done:
