Hi!

Just wondering, what makes lacemail à weave and not a design?

without making the weave, it seems like it should behave like E4-1?

Well, it's definitely not 4-1.

Judging from the image only:

8 small links go through each large link.
Each small link either goes through 4 other small links
OR
1 other small link and 2 large links

I never Said such a thing.

My point Being that the eight (which connect 3 rings, do so in pairs, mimiking E4/1

Well, it should have notably distinct flexibility properties as compared to 4-1, created by the checkerboard of stiff (single solid links) and flexible (small 4-1) units.

Lace Mail The picture is not clear enough for me to see what is going on. The description leaves a lot to be desired as well. Confused

Lorraine:

It is basically an E4-1 mod.

As the small rings are too small, they connect to three in pairs, in a doubled E3-1 fashion.

It's basically:
Code:
(fivelet )(BIG RING)(fivelet )(BIG RING)
(BIG RING)(fivelet )(BIG RING)(fivelet )
(fivelet )(BIG RING)(fivelet )(BIG RING)
(BIG RING)(fivelet )(BIG RING)(fivelet )

Attached with European connections.
Big rings are 8-1.
Fivelets have one central ring 4-1 and four connectors 3-1.

Lace Mail uses the same sheeting format as Staggered Corduroy Grid. The difference between them is that one is inverted and the other is not. It's not simply an appearance change, or it would have been a mod or design; the way the chains are sheeted is an issues of basic structure so behaviour will also be affected. It's a simple change yes, but, it is valid.

(Lace Mail's description has been edited.)
