Hello all!! I am VERY new to chain maille and just mastered the 4-1 weave (yay me!) Laughing I would very much like to make a dice bag and wondered if anyone had a pattern or instructions they could send me or if anyone can point me to a website that I can find one on.

Thanks so much!!!!

-this- is a website you can find one. Smile

you can check out out aders articles Creating a Coif and European 4 in 1: Expanding Circle (Core Method).

or European 4 in 1: Expanding Circle (Fill in Core)

there are also a couple of text and ascii articles, but these photo articles might be the best for a beginner.

a coif and a dice bag are essentially the same.

this method will get you a bottom. to get the sides, just add a sheet of flat maille without any expansions. when i made my last dice bag, i made a fine 20ga chain with 22ga tassels on each end and threaded it through a series of 16ga rings to form a drawstring. you could easily use a leather thong.

i have been thinking of showing my method for making expanding circle coifs. perhaps i will get some use out of these shower curtain rings, after all. tomorrow, what do you hold for me?

i like and would recommend making a dice bag with a "japanese 12 in 2" bottom and "euro 4 in 1" sides. Japanese 12 in 2 is an easy pattern to learn, but expanding "euro 4 in 1" works well too.

I agree with CMB. Once a mailler is already convenient with E4-1 compressions and expansions, the 'periphery to center' method works well - so well that such a mailler could do it also without tutorial. OTOH the expansion from center to periphery, by adding six rings per each consecutive ring row, until the wished bottom diameter is reached, is simply much easier for a beginner.

As the result of both methods is the same, the beginner should chose the easier of the available methods.

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.
