Looks like viking knit [a form of wire weaving as opposed to chainmaille].


while(!project.isFinished())
project.addRing();

You can see in the middle of the picture how it works.

I think the patern in called Foxtail. Click the link for the article.
You can use more sides if you want (like in the picture).

is it foxtail?

i wish you the best of luck. this is not our area of expertise, it is woven wire, not individual rings.

the closest you will find here is Full Persian 6 in 1 or Half Persian 4 in 1

edir: ha! proven wrong before my post.. we -do- have a foxtail tutorial, it seems.

best of luck~

Found another tutorial on trl for Foxtail.
The picture seems to have 6 sides, so you need to cross 3 oval loops instead of the 2 in the tutorial.

Edit: Or it could be a Loop in Loop variant.

Good luck.

Never tried any of these myself, but if you look at the photo in the middle of the picture you linked to, it looks the same to me as tripled loop and loop, from the tutorial Nearoth linked to.

Thanks for your help guys, but at my point of view the Fox chain, isnīt the same.

Thanks for your help guys, but in my point of view this Fox chain is not equal to the fabric that I intend to, however is very similar. I managed to get a few more images, if anyone can understand the procedure, please describe me a step by step tutorial.

Take a look at the loop in loop page that Nearoth linked to, as I said before the tripled variation look the same as the photo you linked to. These extra photos just back up that point - it's tripled loop in loop. It's not strictly maille, and the page Nearoth linked to seems clear enough on how to make it, but there's also an article an how to make it: Loop in Loop. The article shows how to make a doubled loop in loop chain, and the photo you linked to is tripled, but the basic steps are the same - just start with 3 links instead of two. Hopefully that helps - with the article, the instructions Nearoth linked to, and the photos you linked to, it should be pretty clear.

Oh, and it seems that foxtail is the same as the basic loop in loop chain, they're just different names for the same thing.

I think running it through a draw plate is about the only step not shown.
