Celtic Wings & Celtic Wings Sheet
Article © MAIL User: Catweazle
I used 2 different ring sizes for this tutorial:
WD=1,0 mm / ID=5.5 mm (AR of 5.5)
WD=1,0 mm / ID=3.5 mm (AR of 3.5)
Step 1: Make 2 small 1-2-1 chains with 2 small and 2 large rings.
Step 2: Lay one chain with the small middle rings on top of a large ring of the second chain. One chain has a horizontal orientation and the other one a vertical orientation.
Step 3: Turn the "free" large ring (in this case the left one from the picture in step 2) over the vertical chain.
Step 4: Connect the 2 large rings of the horizontal chain with 2 small rings.
Step 5: Add 2 large rings to the 2 small rings and build another 1-2-1 chain.
Step 6: Start again from step 2. Now you've got a Celtic Wings chain with 2 elements. Repeat steps 2 to 5 until your chain has the desired length.
In the following picture you can see 2 chains. In the upper chain I used an AR of 3.5 for the small rings. In the lower one I used an AR of 3.25. This chain is a only a little bit shorter.
The chain in the background (smaller AR of 3.25) is much stiffer than the one in the foreground (smaller AR of 3.5). Size matters if you want to make a bracelet or not.
Celtic Wings Sheet:
Step 01: Build a 1-2-1 chain. Connect a large ring with 2 small rings to a large ring from the Celtic Wings chain.
Step 02: Lay the 1-2-1 chain with a large ring underneath the middle rings of the attachment of the Celtic Wings chain.
Step 03: Turn the "free" large ring over the vertical chain.
Step 04: Connect the 2 large rings of the horizontal chain with 2 small rings.
Step 05: Add 2 large rings to the 2 small rings. Connect a single large ring with 2 small rings to a large ring from the Celtic Wings chain.
Step 06: Repeat steps 2 to 4. Now you've added the next element to your sheet.
Step 07: Repeat steps 2 to 5 until the row is complete. You have now finished a Celtic Wings Sheet with 2 rows.
