Matted Daisies is my fifth experiment with these rings having the stats set forth in this entry. Again, it is a double chain derived from Daisy Chain 2, but where Double Daisies 2 links "unattached" ring to "unattached" ring, Matted Daisies links "unattached" ring to spacer ring
in the opposite chain. This makes for a much tighter, denser weave.
Matted Daisies was so named because of the fact that mobiuses, and especially 3 ring mobiuses (that may just be my perception), are often referred to as flowers.
This sample was made from salvaged 12AWG (.0808") copper electrical wire coiled around a 3/16" mandrel and cut with a 6/0 jeweler's saw. The nominal AR using listed numbers is 2.321.
The measured AR using a dial caliper with .001" increment is 2.278.
At the AR of the sample in the image, this weave does not have much flexibility. In fact, it may be an absolute AR as described in the referenced document at the bottom of this entry, but I have not verified that. I think it would be more ideal with a slightly higher AR and would make a weave that behaves similarly to the two Double Daisy weaves.
My measurements were performed as described in Aspect Ratio Studies by Blaise.
