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.

lorraines sheet is helpful for the guage the mm still need the 25.4 to convert to inches. 25.4mm per inch so from mm to inches is /25.4 inches to mm is x 25.4
Usualy springback screws up converting to fractions on delicate weaves.

Well, the one solution for all this - be it mixed metric/imperial, different gauge systems, or springback correction - is the Aspect Ratio Calculator. Once made, and getting used to, nothing else will be easier. 'Nuff said.

A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

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. Wink
