I was playing around with Narrina's new weave Allure. I wanted it to be symmetrical so I sheeted it a little differently than she did here and here. I made two rows of Allure, with the second one a mirror of the first.

18awg/4.25mm AR 4.33 sterling silver and copper rings.

The weave is not the same on both sides. It reminds me a little bit of Elfweave.

And a close up of the back.


Edited to give correct ring size used. - lorraine

SHIIIINY!!!111111....

And your feeling about Elfweave seems not being unreasonable, as I think that this one can be made also Elfweave based, by skillful adding of 'wing connectors' that also go through core rings. I'll surely test that, as I could err. And I'll see whether some of my alternating frayed Elfweave/rope variants allow such a modification as well. But anyway: You just ignited a spark of an idea in my brain.

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

Lovely work, Lorraine! I like your sheet variation! That is the nice thing about Allure, it can be sheeted in soooo many ways.

ZiLi is right. Elfweave and Allure are definitely related in some way (particularly the various sheet versions, and yours even more so).

This is really neat Lorraine!
Although I noticed a break in your pattern, you have probably noticed by now
at the hook end, the first silver ring in the center row(horizontal plane), hooks through on to many rings in the outer row.

But what a neat weave

No, I hadn't noticed that! Thank you Onering.

Thank you for the compliments everyone. It really is a pretty weave Narrina came up with.

Pretty Lorraine. Any chance of a tut or article on this sheeted variant? I like it better than the single row original....no offense to Narrina, cuz if she didn't come up with that we would not have this! I'm just partial to Elfweave-ish weaves.

Well, I'd like to see that tutorial. Problem is, the link doesn't seem to be working.

You are right Vorondil, which is odd because I just checked the address and it is correct. Sad

If you go to http://corvuschainmaille.ning.com/group/Tutorials this should take you to the main tutorial page and than it is the first tutorial listed.

Hope that help everyone.

Great tut Onering! And I seem to have been doing it the hard way. My way was much more confusing. How about submitting your tut here at MAIL?
