Tome of Weaves: FOUR WINDS CHAIN

INDEX:   A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z






 
 




Description: Four Winds Chain is made from alternating right/left Cloud Cover Chain Units. Alternating the right/left units helps to balance the chain so it will lay flat. Four Winds Chain works best with 2 ring sizes. The larger rings connect each unit. Minimum ARs work best for this weave otherwise the weave is too loose. Sample is made with stainless steel 16swg 3/16" rings with 3.16 AR and 16swg 9/32" tight coil rings with 4.80 AR. Difficulty rating: Beginner.
