Chainmail - new addiction!  

Saturday, February 24, 2007


I'm so excited, I've just finished my first chainmail bracelet, with the European 4-in-1 weave.
Spider's DVD just arrived yesterday, and this is the result. Now if everybody out there who teaches were using her style, I'd buy everything that's out there, lol!

I don't want to take it off my wrist, and it's time to go to bed, it's 10 minutes to midnight!!










As a matter of trivia, this particular stitch was used in Europe in the medieval times, to create chainmail shirts, coifs, vests, etc. It was used during battles, to prevent arrows or other weapons cutting to the skin.

Here is an example of a chainmail coif using this weave.
