So, I'm working on making a European 4-1 mail shirt, and I'm running into problems making the arms and neck areas large enough to get on easily. Anyone have any ideas or advice in this area?

We're... definitely going to need more to go on.

There are articles in the Library: Articles section that could help.

Nice thing about mail is you can always add a little in to get something big enough.

I suppose we can calculate how large your sleeves and shoulder section are, through finding out the link ID you are using, and number of links along an edge -- preferably the bottom edges -- of the shoulder section, which I may presume is either a rectangle, or the European Modified Rectangle with some expansion arrays strategically let into its back half?

Anyway, we'll want details how you've constructed it so far, and where the shortcomings are. Pix okay.
