so I was looking at [weave=Half Persian 4 in 1 Unbalanced] and realized I'd been making it for years only I always spiral it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/68156782@N02/9693590143/
I already tried submitting this as a weave so won't again but thought it might be worth a look to someone,,I've been calling it Persian Heart Chain but I guess Spiraling Half Persian 4 in 1 Unbalanced could work too. oh and the spiraling version works best around AR 7 if anyone is curious.

thanx for the encouragement Kerr, it's fun to make and there is another neat variant if you only spiral every second link.

There are several examples (some I believe to be duplicates) of spiraled Persian and Half Persian weaves in the library already, I'm not sure why yours shouldn't be in there unless it goes back to your comment that you don't put enough info in the description for the weaves admin.

Weave Search: Persian Spiral Chain
Full Persian Spiral/Double Half Persian Spiral ([weave=Full Persian 6 in 1 base])
Half Persian 3 in 1 Full Spiral/Half Persian Spiral ([weave=Half Persian 3 in 1 base])
Half Persian Half Spiral([weave=Half Persian 3 in 1 base])
Half Persian Double Spiral(Half Persian 4 in 1 base?)

Based on the information you've given, both words and image, a technical description sounds like it could be Half Persian 4 in 1 Unbalanced Full Spiral.

That was a part of it. If I'm remembering correctly (it was submitted a couple of years ago), at the time of its submission there was also difficulty discerning it from another weave in the library. The submission photo was also different from the one posted here and not as good an image adding to the difficulty in discerning its structure.

I'm not sure I understand the question,, but it is two 4in1 spirals connected in a persian ridge. here is a link to the only tutorial i've ever made for it, the tutorial has some misinformation in it now that i look back over, i'll edit it when i have time but the pictures are true. http://corvuschainmaille.ning.com/group/Tutorials/forum/topics/persian-heart-7in1-tutorial there i edited all i wanted to over on MWW, Im not sure if that link will go bad now that i changed the name to persian heart 8in1,,looking over I guess it's a progression of Half Persian 3 in 1 Full Spiral but i find using the term full spiral a little confusing especially next to half persian so stuck with the persian heart name. though i guess the variant of only every second link spiraling i was talking about could be (half persian 7in1 half (or staggered) spiral) but i already have a fanciful name for that one too.
