Persian Dragonscale - Weaving and Joining
Article © MAIL User: ChaosSeraphim
The rings used in this tutorial are 12 ga (2mm) 1/2 inch galvanized steel for an approximate AR of 4.8. This gives a nice chain that's not too tight or loose.
Weaving Persian Dragonscale
Make an open-hung strip of European 4 in 1 about one and a half times as long as your finished chain.
Connect three outer rings together to make Half Persian 3 in 1.
Continue to edge with HP along the entire edge.
Repeat on the other side while stacking the rings to make a mirror image.
Connect four of the new HP rings together to make Euro 4-1.
Continue along the entire length of your chain.
Connecting Persian Dragonscale
Bring the sides of your chain together so the grain of the Euro 4-1 on the bottom matches.
Connect your two sides at the Euro 4-1 while maintaining the grain.
Continue the HP sides.
Add connector rings to complete the Euro 4-1 on the top and you're done.
