Forgive me if this is the wrong place, but I'm very proud of this and I wanted to share it and get opinions.



This is my first bracelet other than Byzantine. I figured out the crossover on my own (also proud since I've only been doing this for a month).

Made out of 18g, 5 or 6(what a terrible memory I have...)mm ID, copper rings.

And I might pinch the idea, too...

Wow! That's really beautiful! I've never liked the flat bracelets much as I've usually found them boring, but this looks really nice and interesting! Now I want to do a bracelet just like yours! Very Happy Though I have to wait till I can get my hands on some suitable rings ^^'

it's called "cabling" in knitting. almost every knitting technique has a maille counterpart. learning to knit causes increased maille prowess.

Very creative! Would you post a photo of the other side? I am curious as to how it connects. Thanks!

This is a picture of the two strands of I4-1 Connected up to the crossover. You can see on the lower half the two strands unconnected. The top and underside look identical as I used normal I4-1 connections.

The crossover, however, isn't actually connected, resulting in this:


This is when the crossover has been "untwisted." even when the bracelet is suspended, the crossover still mostly lays flat, and always stays flat while being worn.

Very slick. I like seeing "braided" maille, if the term is correct. I wonder if elf sheet could crossover like this.
