      This is good news...somehow, no matter how long I do this, I still seem to find myself referring back to his sight for getting certain weaves started, if I haven't done them in awhile. Great reference page!

    CGMaille update - no more new tutorials

    Phong, I thank you with much respect for creating and sustaining the site. It was a great help for me to get started. It wasn't the first site i found to learn weaves from, but it was the first site wich made me understand ALL the weaves you put on there. So i find it sad to hear you won't be putting up any new tuts. Still Thanks a lot for the source of knowledge you brought to us all! Nef.

    Making a Ti chainmaille vest

    Making a Ti chainmaille vest

    I would love to take on any of such a project! Just make sure u are able to handle ti, cus its very very very hard to bend it and get a good closure... now multiply that by 50k rings... you will get sore hands, so i hope ur uncle pays for the rings and get you a new car or something because if i would make and sell a ti shirt it will not be sold for less than $10,000 Nef.

    DS on the bias to DS straight?

    If you want to make DS straight you can just continue at a certain width of rings for example if you want it to be 5 rings wide you make the start from one ring and add a layer until you reach five and stop adding a ring to each row! Voila and you have a straight strip of rings! You can also make a 1-1 string of 5 big rings connected with small rings then you place some closed big rings on top of the small rings and "lock" them in place with some big rings on top of the loose rings. They go through the small rings of the first 1-1 string! And just continue layer by layer! Nef.

    Making a tie

    ok thanks for the replies all, i made up my mind and will go with Movak's way, its fast and simple... and when i'm gonna make a version 2.0 of the tie its gonna be dragonscale. I just don't have the time nor the rings for the weave to do it... But they both look great so i think my result will be good too! Just a question Movak: Did you join the tie-strip to the knot-strip itself from behind? Or did you attach the strip to the knot strip from the back and let the front part hang loose? If you understand my crooked line of thought...

    Making a tie

    Hi all, i've got a new project. I want to make a maille tie to wear on a suit. I've got a gathering next month and i would like to wear it then. But i'm trying to find some pictures i thought i've seen here a few years back. Because i want to know if it's possible to make a tie-able one.. and what ring sizes are used.. I have other ties so i can just use one as a template but i don't want it to be too open... and also not having a project of tens of thouzands of rings... zo im looking at 1.2 mm x 4.2 mm rings... If some of you still have old pictures or stats... pls post em Thanks, Nef.

      Yeah, I've taken the colour off AA in about a year of constant wear... EC is fairly indestructable though, provided it'd not exposed to chemicals.
