DescriptionThis is a coaster woven from Japanese 4 in 2 Hex, the kinged-horizontal ring variant of Japanese 4 in 1 Hex, that is also known as Japanese 6 in 1 Variant, while in fact it isn't 6 in 1 at all. Thus I prefer the alternative J4in1/2Hex names.
The fact that here the horizontals are paired, brings the minimum AR requirement for horizontal as well as vertical rings to 2.6 - as I used BA 1.6mm (16swg) coiled on 5/32" mandrel, and sawcut rings with an AR of 2.58 rings, this piece is literally stiff as sheet metal, and relies already on material elasticity to be weavable at all - and so it was a real PITA to weave...
