Author's Note
Our projects were very popular during the lifetime of our business and we wanted to ensure they continued to provide inspiration for chain maillers whatever their experience. It's a pleasure to see they will live on with Chainmaillers.com

Each side of a Half Persian 3-1 chain looks different. The final picture above shows the side of the Celtic half Persian that we prefer, which is the back of the weave in the instructions.

Instructions

  1. Close three bright aluminium (A) rings and three bronze rings (B). Place the bright aluminium rings inside the bronze rings.

  2. Link one bronze ring (B) and one bright aluminium ring (A) through the three pairs of rings from step 1. Lay the rings out as shown, overlaying the top two pairs of rings, no.s 1 and 2. The correct positioning of these first rings is vital.

  9. Go back to the start of the chain. One pair of rings needs adding to finish the lower row of rings. Weave one bronze ring (B) through the centre of the first pair of upper rings and up through the centre of the second pair of upper rings. This ring lays beneath the pair of rings already in place.
