The tutorials are presented here with the same images and text from my old site CGMaille. I hope they continue to help inspire you to learn and create many amazing pieces!

Weave Background
Half Persian 3-1 Sheet 6 can be made with reversed orientations, but how do you join them into one piece? There are several ways to do so; this tutorial shows how to join it using a strip of Interwoven 4-1. You can also use 3/4 Persian, Elfweave, and Double Gridlock.

Aspect Ratio & Ring Sizes
Half Persian 3-1 sheet 6 needs AR's of 5.0 and up, such as 20awg 3/16", 18swg 1/4" and 16swg 5/16". Interwoven 4-1 also works with these sizes.

Metric sizes - approximately 0.8mm wire/4.8mm ID; 1.2mm wire/6.4mm ID; and 1.6mm wire/8mm ID.

Tutorial Color Scheme
New rings are gold and old rings are steel.


Step 1: Make two patches of HP3-1 Sheet 6 with opposite orientations and lay them out as shown.

Step 2: Pass an open ring through the top two edge rings that are coming 'up' out of the weave, for both patches.

Step 3: Pass another open ring through the next 4 rings that are coming 'up' out of the weave. The upper two of these rings were used in the previous step; the lower two are from a new row.

Step 4: Repeat all the way down the side. The last ring you add should only go through 2 rings.

Step 5: Turn the whole thing over, and add a ring to the 2 edge rings that are pointing 'up' at you. It should blend in with the very top row of rings.
