I followed a youtube tut from an Irish gentleman and he listed the rings needed as 1.2 mm X 6.00 mm and 1.2 mm X 10.5 mm . As close as I could get was 18 ga.SWG X 15/64". I did okay weaving the four arms but when I went to extend the bottom leg it got tighter and then I just couldn't fit it thru the opening. Did I do something wrong or can anyone offer me some advice? I know the rings are not exactly the same but I thought they would be close enough. Can 0.047 mm and 0.020mm make that much difference? Help.

You probably didn’t do anything wrong. A few thousandths of an inch in ring sizing can be enough of a difference to cause something to become unweaveable, or uncomfortably tight to add further rings to.

If by Persian in the title of this thread, you mean Full Persian 6 in 1, then you might consider Byzantizing the stem, by using Persiantine, as with this example: http://www.mailleartisans.org/gallery/gallerydisplay.php?key=4589

This allows it to be weaved in a slightly smaller AR.
