Awesome work, WpA09.

It's funny how you have the sides labeled as right and wrong. I've seen other people refer to these configurations the same way you have (or with the terms top and bottom used instead), but ever since I first made HP3-1, I considered them the other way around. The first image in your post, to me, is the top of the weave.


I'm with you... Must be a Canuckia thing...


If it is, then I must be genetically Canadian, despite having lived my entire life here in the USA Smile. Odd and unbalanced HPs I always see as having a trapezoidal cross section, with the wide part as the bottom and the eyes as the top.


It's alright, I'm a Brit born and raised Wink

Well, we all have different viewpoints Wink According to me, the way I posted my images is what is correct to me, hence the quotation marks around right and wrong. I have always had this point of view since I made my first HP3/1 bracelet myself haha. Anyway, it is very interesting that we have differences in our thoughts about the matter.

I have to say though, the bracelet is very nice when worn, what I call, the wrong way. Might make some more of these when time allows.

my dad wears his HP3in1 bracelet with the peak out too, there seems to be something about those persian sheet strips as you get closer to the min AR.

Yup! When you get close to the minimum AR the only option, if you want something that is slightly curved, is to have the peak out from the bend, otherwise it will be stiff.

I actually made a HP3/1 ring with 0.8mm Stainless with an AR of 3.75 and an inner diameter of 3mm. It was very neat. Unfortunately, it is long gone and I don't have a picture. Probably somewhere around my guitarist's house, since it was there I last saw it. But anyway, around that AR is the lower limit of HP3/1 so It is required to be worn with the edge extruding outwards.

Indeed, I find that HP3-1 starts to curl under a measured AR of 3.9 or so. All unbalanced HPs will have the point beneath which this occurs.

Incidentally, this point for the doubled version of HP3-1: HP6-2 is right near an AR of 6.6.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

I like the way this Half Persian 3 in 1 Flip turned out. I was actually making Persian 4 in 1 Sheet, and making this is the first step using the "flip" method.



.078" (2mm) bright aluminum, 19/64" (7.5mm) mandrel (.324" ID, AR of 4.2).

I just found my HP3/1 ring in my bass case beneath the effect pedal! Maybe we should have band practice more often Uber

Sadly, it won't qualify for this contest Sad

My previous posting of this seems to have disappeared! A bracelet made of the newly-approved Solstice:

Rings used are copper 1.2mm x 4.5mm ID and 1mm x 3.5mm ID. Clasp is a matching-coloured foldover.

I made this awhile back. A fan of Shenanigans, it only seemed right that I make Dragonsteps when it was introduced. Materials are 18G SWG Stainless Steel 4MM ID and 18G SWG Bronze 6.8MM ID

This is a color sampler of the 2-connector variant of Ocean Waves. The far left chainlet rolled a little bit, so you can see the underside of the weave.

TRL saw cut AA rings:
20ga 5/32" (AR 5.3)
20ga 3/32" (AR 3.0)

They're great, especially the middle three. Makes me want to give them a try.

Mmm, nice. I'd already been eyeing Ocean Waves as a weave to do, but I hadn't considered mixed colours.

I like the way you set up the photo, too. Very artfully arranged.

For this contest I made a column of Tri-Orbitwist out of Bright Aluminium (AlMg5). It is a string of Tri-Orbitwist with tripled center rings which is surrounded by three further strings. All Strings are woven counter-clockwise.

WD = 1.2 mm ID = 8.8 mm AR = 7.3 # = 810 Rings
