Confused Well it has happened. I have been crafting maille for over 20yrs and i am finally stumped. A friend wants a pair of maille leggings that look like fishnet stockings and for the life of me my brain just can't seem to see an acceptable pattern that will look good. Any advice???


Thanks in advance
Logan

Logan, could you please type in white? Maybe pale blue at the most radical? Thanks in advance.

Somewhere in the gallery on here I saw a Euro 4/1 shirt or something done in diamonds. It was like they made big Xs with sheets of the weave and then connected them. I know that's not explaining anything. I'll go look for the picture.

As I proposed in another thread (there it was a curtain project) it must not necessarily be an area weave, but can also be a web built of linear weaves - many linear weaves can be arranged well in honeycomb patterns...

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.

there are a couple different things in the weaves section under spiral that might also work

I had a friend ask for fishnets also. I was thinking fine byzantine. Though I like DQ's idea of 4in1 open diamonds...could JPL be done in a web form if connected with different sized rings at the diamond points?
