Weave: http://www.mailleartisans.org/weaves/weavedisplay.php?key=1335

I'm trying to figure out how to do this weave (preferably with 7 petals) - can anyone give hints/tips?

I've sat with chains for hours - it looks SO simple, but...

Thanks!

If you haven't seen this image, it may help.

You may also want to look at Fireman's Hold 4.
While it's not the same weave, they are constructed in a very similar way. More specifically, the related weave has a tutorial: Fireman's Hold 4 (CGI).

The only difference between Fireman's Hold and Celtic Rosette is that Fireman's Hold's horizontally stacked while Celtic Rosette forms a spiral overlap. Using the images from the article, the step 5 green ring would be placed over the blue ring to make Celtic Rosette.

Start by learning the basic connection for the orbital family. See the following:

http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.php?key=431

Ring size (apect ratio) needs to be within a range. If it doesn't hold its shape, the rings are too big. If you can't get it to close, then the rings are too small.

Start there and report back, then we can find the next step. Don't give up! Cutters

I can only manage to weave these at larger ARs than those listed. *note: all ARs listed are based on measured inner diameters.
At AR of 5.6 the Celtic Rosette 5 was very tight. At AR of 5.7 it was nice and snug but not overbearing- what I would consider ideal for the unit.

AR of 6.0 became too loose, however, it worked barely for Celtic Rosette 6. At AR of 6.2 the unit has a slight looseness.

Once AR of 6.3 was reached, the 7-Sided version worked. 6.2 felt too tight to force the 7-sided, yet there is slight flexibility at 6.3.

These things are a little tricky to assemble because you have to keep all the rings swirled the same way, and the last orbital connection is hard to make because the orbital ring is already on the unit and not a loose one being added.

Regarding ring swirl: the wing rings can lean in either direction, as long as they’re consistent. The unit has handedness meaning there are two versions.

Have you been able to assemble any of the other versions with less sides?
What ring sizes do you have available?

I finally managed it on AR 7 rings. Smile 5 hours of swearing and cursing!

I can't imagine trying it on ARs below that - I can see it'd work, but it was so fiddly at AR7! I did add a ring in the middle to stabilise it somewhat...

Now to try in steel on a higher AR as a pendant. Smile[/img]
