Sorry, but is dwarf maille any different than double maille? If it is, then I've been doing double wrong Smile

Is the celtic visions flowr you're talking about like the one I have in my profile? If it is and no one has done it, I will.

Yes, they are different. The difference is somewhat subtle, and I missed it at first too.
Double maille has only one set of rings (each set has a different angle ~60 and ~(-60)) from the top sheet passing through the bottom sheet. Dwarf mail has all of the rings in the top sheet passing through the bottom sheet.

Here?s the relevant step from Double maille (note that the new ring passes through FOUR rings, all from the top sheet):


And here?s the same step for Dwarf maille (note that the new ring passes through SIX rings, four from the top sheet and two from the bottom):


Hope this helps, Eli I
