Dragonflank is is one of several Euro-Persian Hybrid tubes consisting of 2 Half Persian 3 in 1 chains stitched together with European 4 in 1 connections.
Dragonflank takes two HP3 chains of the same handedness, lays one out with the top side up, the other with the bottom side up, and then stitches them together with E4 connections. This results in a tube chain similar to Dragonback, but with an offset hump instead of a centered hump. It is also identical on each side, unlike DB which is flatter on one side than the other. Both edges are Dragonback edges (side view of a HP3 chain), but one is upside down compared to the other.
The sample image here used 7/16" (0.4375", ~11.1mm) and 5/16"(0.3125", ~7.9mm) inside diameter wires in 14SWG/12AWG (.081", ~2mm) galvanized steel and copper wire. The larger rings were used for the HP3, the smaller rings were used for the E4 stitching.
The sample piece is very flexible with this combination of ARs. As with many weaves, the ARs can be tweaked to give a stiffer or looser result as personal preference desires. One could also adjust ARs to use a single ring size.
