Weave Description
A weave by Corvus Chainmaille.

Acanthus was accidentally made while trying to make Clever Wench's European Corinthian (also thanks to Clever Wench for the name). It looks very similar to European Corinthian but its construction is not the same.

Acanthus is made by making a strip of European 4 in 1 4 rings wide with 2 rows of large rings in the middle and a row of small rings on either side. It is then 'gathered' together with another large ring, gather 12 small rings, leaving 4 small on the other side free (in this sample this ring is doubled for strength) and an extra small ring added on either side for extra stability.

This makes Acanthus much looser and more flexible than European Corinthian yet still a stable weave.
This sample is 0.9mm bronze 5mm ID & 3mm ID rings.
