 problem with handfast weave... Posted on Thu Nov 12, 2009 5:29 am Link to Post: ok, here's the gist, I've built it already, my problem? AR is too tight, I am not too sure what she used as I'm no good at converting her decimals to fractals, any help would be great, I know the gauges, just not the ring size.... Here's the link: http://mailleartisans.org/weaves/subcat.cgi?key=40568 all help would be appreciated.Ask not what wd-40 can do for you, instead ask what wd-40 cannot do for you......

The conversion is right next to mm on the chart.
Example: the first ring ID listed on Handfast is 8.5mm. Going down the mm side of the table you see 8.33mm. Follow the line back to inches, 8.33mm = .328125" = 21/64". Simple as that.
