Hello everyone,
I just started doing mail a short time ago (a friend of mine showed me how) and I've been spending alot of time browsing the site looking at all the amazing weaves, and I remember one getting my interest, the description said something about being quite stiff vertically but flexible horizontally. I tried to find it again the next day but I couldn't. Can anyone help? No rush or anything, I'm still practicing on my little 4-1 European weave coif Wink

Hey , welcome to M.A.I.L. the description above may applied to many weaves depending on ring size, but you'll find out all about that soon.

Here is one example UE4-1B.

Are you talking about a sheet weave or a chain? I would assume sheet since you are playing with Euro 4-in-1.

If your looking for a sheet, the Persian weaves typically have more flexibility one direction than the other. Of course, before you can weave Persian sheet you need to learn Persian chain. Phong, a member of this forum, has some great tutorials http://cgmaille.com/tutorials/hp3-1.shtml

HP3-1S5 (Half Persian 3-in-1, sheet 5) lays flat on one side but has sort of a diagonal curl when rolled the other way. http://cgmaille.com/tutorials/hpsheet5.shtml

HP3-1S6 (Half Persian 3-in-1, sheet 6) is a very nice weave, uniform looking on both sides but stiff in one direction and flexible the other way. http://cgmaille.com/tutorials/hpsheet6.shtml

These weaves are a bit of work to figure out, but well worth the effort. If you want to learn, there are plenty of folks here eager to help you. Coif Smiley
