  14. Sig, Regarding question #2 - the bracelet was started as three separate strands of E6-1 that were woven into a relatively loose braid (let's call these strands A, B and C). However, when closing the bracelet, instead of connecting the ends A-A, B-B and C-C I connected A to B, B to C and C to A (you might need to play with the number of overlaps you make when weaving the braid). Once connection was done this way, the bracelet ended up having just a single continuous strand of E6-1. I pulled out and removed a portion of this strand to adjust the final bracelet size. Hope this helps. Dr. T
  15. Exil, You can make Dragonscale weave stretch more by turning it 90 degrees, so the grain runs sideways, like so: Another option to make it more flexible is to use interconnected patches of the weave: Dr. T
