Vipera Berus Sheet
(CGI; Flat Wire Rings)
Article © MAIL User: NetStormer
The rings I have successfully used to complete this weave were stainless steel 18SWG 3/16" (1.2mm Wire Dia. by 5.16mm ID). These rings were purchased from The Ring Lord.
The basic structure of Vipera Berus Sheet is quite simple. It is a European 4 in 1 sheet with multiple 1-1 chains woven through it.
You will want to start with a Vipera Berus chain as long as you will be wanting your sheet to be.
Step 1: Add rings to one side of the chain for the next section of the sheet. These rings are added in the same way you would add on an extra row of Euro 4 in 1.
Step 2: Add in the vertical rings, alternating the rings' position according to the Vipera Berus weave.
Continue adding in this manner until you reach the end of the rings you added in Step 1.
Step 3: Repeat the process done in Steps 1 and 2.
Step 4: Continue repeating Steps 1 and 2 until you have your sheet the desired length.
You have now created a Vipera Berus Sheet.
The second method of creating the Vipera Berus Sheet involves starting with a Euro 4 in 1 sheet and weaving the vertical rings into the sheet. The Euro 4 in 1 sheet will end up hanging the "wrong way" and the 1-1 chain will be vertical through the sheet.
This method is quite difficult at lower ARs, and should probably only be done at the 4.5 or higher AR range.
