I'll offer up Sheet weaves and Micromaille. Micromaille being defined by the submitter--the community will vote according to what they think. I don't want to suggest any hard limits on micromaille.

Pay attention to the grain of the weave. Since you're not making an entire shirt, you have a bit more flexibility in that respect. It may be a simple thing, but I could see myself getting halfway thro ...

I would think [weave=Box Chain 4 in 1] would be slightly weaker than [weave=Full Persian 6 in 1] because the rings are at a greater angle to the axis of the chain. Pulling a ring apart is tough. Twist ...

I'd look at [weave=Mystique], [weave=Elfbox] or other [weave=Elfweave]-based weaves, or check out [weave=Poor King's Scale]. I found a Poor King's Scale/Vertebrae ring kit on another site...I'll give ...

The formula I used assumed the rings were almost straight in the weave, and in [weave=Full Persian 6 in 1], they are close to straight. (if the V shapes in full persian were more like || then they'd b ...

I was curious so I asked my sister-in-law, who works at a specialty bra store, what a 40J bra looked like. Her first question was "American J or European J?"

Apparently even in the US, it ...

If you want functional armor, either use split rings, welded rings, or riveted rings. Butted rings just don't have the strength that the other three have. It's probably still better than nothing, just ...

AR = ID/Thickness

ID = AR*Thickness

Wire Length = 2*pi*radius

Wire Length = 2*pi*((ID+Thickness)/2) = pi*(ID+Thickness) = pi*(AR*Thickness+Thickness) = pi*(AR+1)*Thickness

I guess I didn't think [weave=Tiffany] would be that rollable, but I won't know until I try. I do have some [ar=4.7] rings, so I'll give it a shot. It's been on my want-to-try list for awhile anyway. ...

I need suggestions for a weave using rings in the [AR=4] to [AR=6] range (roughly) that has little to no lengthwise flexibility (I don't want to be able to push its ends together and make it squish as ...
