Cool. I've been wanting to try this one out. Needlenose Pliers

Looking at the picture of Ficus, the structure makes me think of Rosetta, only backwards.


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.

I've been wanting to contribute to these studies.

I hope I can.

I joined this forum only recently after having picked up a passion for chain maille jewellery crafts. This weave was relatively straightforward to replicate. I used 5mm rings (Inner Diameter) with a wire diameter of 1mm and it worked quite well (I think that makes it an Aspect ratio of 5?? but I'm not sure if I calculated that right). I used it to make a pendant. Hope to upload a tutorial in the next few days showing how I did it and the finished product

I approved a tutorial for this weave, however, it doesn't show up. I sent a PM to DL, so hopefully he can resolve it. I've never seen this happen, but the Articles Library is still in Beta version.


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 was actually wondering about that.
Maybe if it helps, the "approval" in the site update feed directs to the last approved article.

That is quite strange. If the article did somehow disappear, I can always submit it again. I saved the article as a text file just in case. The last time one of my articles went missing it turned back up though.

Strange indeed. DL's been away for a few weeks. I guess when he comes back we'll hopefully find out what's going on.

I know it's August, but I can't make rosetta out from the picture. What's the difference?

Rosetta is basically like Byzantine with an additional set of connecting rings making the units shift 90 degrees from traditional byzantine. Ficus is similar except the 4 "box chain" rings are turned 90 degrees so that the connecting rings intersect them in such a way as to flatten the unit rather than expand it into a box.
