DescriptionI experimented what happens, if the FP cells of a Full Persian 6 in 1 are rotated against each other, continuously in one direction. The result was found to be the already existing weave Double Half Persian Spiral, also known as Full Persian Spiral in our weave database.
Here is another variant of FP Spiral. I call it 'Full Persian Alternate Twist', as this time the twist direction is alternated from cell to cell. Other twist alteration patterns are possible, and surely equally attractive.
Stats: Rings used for this weave sample were 1.6*9.0mm Bright Aluminium (final AR of 6.0). This variant, having an attractive rectangular cross-section, is already near to stiff at 6.0 - if a bracelet or other jewellery chain shall be made from, I propose to use an AR in the 6.4 to 7 range; in case it shall be used for making stiff 'rods' for sculptural work, I propose to use rings with an AR of 5.9.
