 Posted on Wed Jul 23, 2003 2:42 pm Link to Post: That's fantastic, I love it! One niggling little technical detail, though. The J4-1 variant one is actually J6-1 with some flat rings removed, so should it be called 4-1?

 Posted on Wed Jul 23, 2003 10:49 pm Link to Post: I went with the same deductive logic Kim used - each horizontal (large) ring passes through four connecting (small, vertical) rings.. Most references I've seen to it also call it "a j4n1 variant", so... But I figured the back of the shirt cuz it's more likely to be seen - it's readable while you're hunched over weaving

Let me look into what would be required to make a transfer that would look decent on a black shirt..
