DescriptionTechnical name: Alternating Berused Dragonscale
Dragonscale, with strings of 2 in 1 Chain berused through alternating rows. Each link of the 2-1 chain becomes an orbital/rhino of the smaller ring in each successive row of Dragonscale. On the "front side" of the weave, each ring of the 2-1 chain crosses over only one of the larger Dragonscale rings--on the "backside", each ring in the 2-1 chain crosses over two of the larger of the Dragonscale rings.
Started with a slightly loose Dragonscale--the example is made from 16swg 3/8" BA AR of 6.3 and 18swg 1/4" AR of 5.5 black AA, the berused rings from 18swg 3/8" bronze AR of 8.35, all from TRL, and all saw cut. As far as flexibility goes, it is a bit stiffer than your everyday Dragonscale lengthwise (from top to bottom), but has very nice movement yet from side to side. Could probably be made with just a bit larger AR for better movement.
