Half Persian 3 Sheet 5 in 1
(from CGMaille)
Article © MAIL User: Phong

Half Persian 3 Sheet 5 in 1 is one of the ways to turn Half Persian 3 in 1 into a sheet. It's formed by attaching consecutive Half Persian 3-1 chains. It's called 'sheet 5' because each ring ends up going through 5 others - 3 from its own Half Persian 3-1 chain and 2 from the next Half Persian 3-1 chain. It ends up using both the standard Persian Around Eye connection and the Europeans-style Through Eye connection. Therefore I consider it to be more of a Persian-Euro hybrid, rather than a strictly Persian weave. But most places you'll see it listed as a Persian weave.

This method produces a rectangular patch. There is another way to make Half Persian 3-1 Sheet 5 that produces a parallelogram. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks neat. Half Persian 3 Sheet 6 in 1 is another way to make a parallelogram-shaped sheet of Half Persian 3-1. Half Persian 3 Sheet 5 in 1 needs AR's larger than that for regular HP3-1; say, AR of 4.8 and higher.

Step 1: Make a <a href="hp3-1.shtml">HP3-1</a> chain the length you want the final patch to be.

Step 2: Close two rings and put them on an open ring. Pass the open ring down through the two leftmost bottom rings from the HP3-1 chain. Arrange the closed rings so they're in the usual HP3-1 fashion.

Step 3: Close another ring and put it on another open ring. Pass the open ring up through the eye formed by the two rings from Step 2, and down through the eye from the next two rings in the original HP3-1 chain. Man, that description stunk. Sorry about that, folks.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 until you reach the end of the HP3-1 chain. For the last ring, you don't need to add a preclosed ring.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-4 until the patch is the desired length.
