So, via IM, David_Austin has nearly put me to shame (with no offense) because I don't actually have mastery of a huge number of weaves. I was wondering, what do the rest of you have down? Remember, these are weaves you don't need a tutorial for, and take relatively little time to make. Also note I don't include things I've never made, no matter how easy they look Coif LoL

Mine is something like...

E4, E6, E8, etc...
Box
Byzantine
Dragonscale
Gridlock
Inverted Round
King's (scale anything)
Roundmaille
Turkish Round
Box 6
Cobra / Hinge
Cobra round
Dragon Tail
Dragonlock
Elfweave
Elfsheet
Tiffany
Gridlock Byzantine
Jacob's Ladder
Strangemaille
Strangebox
J4-1, J6-1
Full Persian
Persian Grizzly
Persian Dense
HP3-1 S6 and it's chain, GSG
HP4-1, and sheet 8
Ate Too Much Persian
Hilt Chain
HP3-1 Flip
X-weave, and Mystic Maille
Persian 4-1 Sheet
Sand Worm
Celtic Visions
Helm Chain
RSD
mobius ball©!
Spiral 4, 6
Hoodoo / Sheet
JPL

Uhh... I think that's all of them. Doesn't look pathetic from here, but I don't know yet.

I've been trying to update my sig as I pick up new weaves. I also will include progression-type variants if I understand the progression (i.e. European evens, basic half persians).

European even-in-1 (4, 6, 8, etc.)
Boxchain
Basic Half-Persians (3, 4, 5, etc.)
Byzantine, Turkish Round, Celtic Round, etc. (don't have a good general descriptor for this type of weave)
Inverted Round
Captive Inverted Round
Reinforced Inverted Round (which also includes Bore Worm)
Rhinos Snorting Drano (and by extension, Barrel Weave, which I've also seen as Stairway to Heaven, I think)
A Rhinos Snorting Drano variant that I haven't seen documented
Thunderbolt
Hoodoo
mobius ball©
Offset Box/Frog's Eggs
Trinity
Oops (aka European 4-in-1 Unbalanced)

Unconventional:
Foxtail (loop-in-loop with neoprene)
U-Joint (what I call the connection used in this piece)
Single Jack Hex (I still need to find/take pics of this Smile)

I think I comprehend Roundmaille, although I haven't actually done a piece, yet. I think that about sums up my repertoire at the moment.

I believe that is it . I think there are 90 (I lost count a couple of times)
Out of these, I only know about 80 by heart. The rest I would have to look at a picture to re-figure them out (for I have only made them about 2 times for sport or creative purposes). I know for a fact that those in this list that have tutotials I know by heart. It's usually the fuzzy pictured ones I mess up on.

My list of weaves to learn is rather extensive, due to the fact that I've been a slacker in the weave dept. for the last few years Wink.
