Persian Dragontail 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.
Persian Dragontail takes two HP3 chains of opposite handedness, lays them both out on their sides with the tops facing and then stitches them together with E4 connections. This results in a tube chain similar to Persian Dragonscale, but with flared sides, which makes sense since you are looking at the bottom side of an HP3 chain instead of the top side.
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.
