Half Persian 3-in-1

Gary @UrbanMaille - Monday, April 01, 2013

It's been a while since I've learned a *new* weave. So over the Easter weekend I worked out the sizes for Half-Persian 3-in-1 and made myself this great 14g copper bracelet.

The weave is extremely interesting as it is *not* symmetrical. It's more of a trapezoid shaped and it has a distinct top side and a bottom side. The top is what you see pictured above. The other side almost looks like HP 4-in-1 but with a steeper angle. The copper and bronze in this photo show the top of the weave - the silver-filled in the middle shows the bottom.

This weave works great in an Aspect Ratio of around 4. My copper bracelet above was made using 14g/6.5mm Copper. The sizes and counts that have been tested so far are:

14g/6.5mm Copper - 11 rpi (rings per inch)

16g/5.25mm Silver Filled - 13 rpi

18g/4.0mm Bronze -  16 rpi

Use the counts above to calculate how many rings you need - or send me an email and I'll be happy to do the math for you :)  Ringpacks will be listed in the next few weeks.

The weave is fairly simple and I used the instructions from CGMaille. It is a bit tricky to get started, but it's a quick weave once you've got the pattern.
