Weave Guide

Weave Name | Ring Types

Weaves are divided into families and introduced in this order. Weave families are subdivided by Captive, Orbital, Captive Orbital, and Reinforced where applicable. In terms of form, sheet weaves expand on two planes and cover an area. Some are further broken down as Square, Hex, Directional, and Chain Sheet, and Web. Dimensional (cube) weaves expand on three planes to occupy a volume. Finally, chain weaves expand on one plane and cover a certain length. Chain weaves include tubes, formed of a continuous sheet weave of a fixed number of rows with the last row connecting seamlessly to the first, and bands, which are flatter and wider than other chains. Units are themselves zero-dimensional, but can be repeated or expanded into weaves.

Japanese

The Japanese family of weaves is made up of basic connections that start with very low ARs. Squarely, and hexagonally expanding sheets of perfect symmetry are introduced. Dimensional expansion is made possible with Japanese 4 in 1 Cube. Multiple orbital possibilities exist which introduce Tetra Orbs, and Hourglass Units. Popular chains of the Japanese weave family include Celtic Visions, Helm Chain, and Harvest Moon. Hexagonally expanding sheets include Japanese Dragonscale, Captive/Orbital Hex Cage, Borealis, and Power Grid.

European

The European family of weaves intoduce the alternating lean rows found in European 4 in 1, Trinitymaille, and Oops. Inverting options introduce Corduroy, and Inverted Round. Byzantine and Turkish Round alternate the direction of the cells of Box, and Roundmaille tubes, respectively. These items are also ideal for captivation. Dragonscale, and Dragontail are scaled weaves with rings that orbit smaller rings. Trizantine, Quaterzantine, and Quinatzantine add layers to Byzantine and introduce cross cell options. Extended European weaves include Candy Cane Cord, Elfsheet, and Tiffany. Basic European connections are found in many Hybrid weaves, especially those involving Half Persian chains.

Persian

The Persian family of weaves intoduce the "around-the-eye" (AE) connection type, and combine them with "through-the-eye" (TE) connections, as introduced by the preceding Europeean weave family. Primary division is by Half Persian, and Full Persian groupings, which further separate based on unbalanced and balanced models. Several sheeting options exist for these, and their midway Quarter Persian chains. Numerous Full Persian grain-crossing variants exist as well in this vastly expansive family. Some extended Persian weaves include Sweetpea, Viperscale, and Sandstone. Popular Hybrid HP3/European designs include Persian Dragonscale, and Dragonback.

Weave Name

Certain weaves from a given family have an 'x in y' (with x greater than y) designation (e.g. European 4 in 1 (E4-1)) indicating how many rings pass through each ring (with different rules for the Japanese weave family, where only the horizontal rings do this). Some weave names extend those of a previous version of the weave with the addition of one or more qualifiers. E.g. Captive Japanese 8 in 2 (CJ8-2) vs. Japanese 8 in 2 (J8-2), Reinforced Inverted Round (RIR) vs. Inverted Round (IR), Three Quarters Persian Sheet (3QPS6-1) vs. Three Quarters Persian (3QP) , and Half Persian 5 in 1 Symmetrical (HP5-1Sym) vs. Half Persian 5 in 1 (HP5-1), to name a few. Other prefix/suffixes include Unbalanced, Staggered, Inverted, Offset, Alternate/Alternating, Dense, Quad, Quint, etc., Double, and Triple. Wherever possible, technical names are provided.

Note: Most weaves have no affiliation with the geographical region after which they are named.


Where applicable, Captive, Orbital, Orbit, or/and Reinforced precede the name of a weave. In cases where a chain is held captive, the name of the chain being held captive precedes the word Captive, e.g. 2 in 1 Chain Captive 4 in 2 Chain (2-1CC4-2C). Orbital rings have been further distincted by how they orbit. Orbit is used for rings that surround entire rings, sets of rings, or weave segments (cells). Orbital has been preserved for those encicling connection points. Where applicable, the number of captive/orbital/reinforced rings are denoted with (C#), (O#), or (R#), e.g. RIR(R3).

Ring Types

Every weave is made of one or more ring types. Weaves of multiple ring types don't necessarily use different ring sizes, but in some cases it is ideal. In certain cases it is mandatory. Weaves of a single ring type can, of course, be made of multiple ring sizes. An example of this is found in graduated maille.

Ring types
  • horizontal rings (Japanese)
  • vertical rings (Japanese)
  • lean row rings (European, Persian, Spiral*)
  • connector rings (Byz, TR, etc., bolted chain sheets, webs)
  • captive rings
  • orbital rings
  • orbit rings
  • reinforced rings
  • inner (3+ ring stacks)
  • outer (3+ ring stacks)
  • intermediate (5+ ring stacks)

*Single lean row in basic Spiral chains.

In their purest form, 2-1C, and its ultimate conclusion in terms of dimensional grid expansion, J4-1Cube both use a single ring type. So do straightforward directional sheet weaves like E4-1, HP3S6-1, and their standard progressions. They are made up of alternating lean rows in which every ring shares the same connection type. Chain weaves that are tubes of standard sheet weaves, as found in Box, and Tri-Force, for example, are also single ring type containing, as well as items such as FP6-1, and HC6-1, and the completely inverted IR. Spiral 4-1, and its progressive successors are all of a single ring type too, and also is JPL, and Hoodoo (Sheet). Naturally balanced HP4-1 and its proper (even in 1) progressions, as well as HP2S4-1 also share the single ring type characteristic.

All Balanced, Unbalanced, and Symmetrical Half Persian # in 1 chains have a single ring type with exceptions occurring in the "Double" (layered) versions of unbalanced HPs (DHP3-1, DHP5-1), which have inside and outside rings in each set, as well does DFP6-1 from the Full Persian camp. Standard Full Persian # in 1 chains have one ring type, but not Grizzlies of FPs based on odd HPs. FP6-1G is forced to use a grain that yields two different ring types on opposite axes. However, moving to one based on an even HP: FP8-1G balances out the up:down ratio producing a consistently flexible weave of a single ring type. Most properly doubled (Kinged) versions of weaves that use a single ring type contain only rings of a single type as well, with exceptions occuring in those derived of unbalanced Half Persians, since each ring set has an inside and outside ring.

The basic sheet weaves from the Japanese family: J6-1, J3-1, J4-1HW, J4-1, and their doubled versions each have two ring types: horizontal rings, and vertical (connector) rings. The horizontal rings pass through more rings than the vertical ones and ideally a larger ID is used. Other Japanese weaves like Celtic, CV, and their sheet expansions also have multiple ring types. In terms of directional sheets, a level of complexity, and an additional ring type is added when successive rows don't alternate. Weaves like 3QPS6-1 contain an added row before a direction shift giving the sheet ridges. A similar thing is seen in Gridlock, which has horizontal rings and sets of angled ring rows between them. Despite having two ring types, these weaves are typically made out of a single ring size.

Byzantine is made up of two ring types, since it is single Box units separated by connector rings. TR Byzantises RM similarly. Byz progression Triz adds a third ring type with those added to the middle of each Box cell. These rings are ideally larger to keep those on the outside from being slack. Quaterzantine adds yet another ring type, since the added inner connector ring is ideally smaller than the outer ones. Further progressions each add an additional ring type. In some cases certain weaves are forced to use different ring sizes. Among the most common of these are DS, DT, and Helm Chain. These weaves have rings which completely orbit (scale) the OD of smaller ones. This is also seen in Saturn, for example.

Any weave containing captive, orbital, and/or reinforced rings has to be composed of multiple ring types. Captive rings are held in place by cage rings. Orbital rings go around connection points (or rings/cells in the case of orbit rings), and reinforcing rings pass through sets of rings in the cells of the weave being reinforced. Ring stacks can affect the total number of ring types in a weave. A ring stack is where rings are doubled (Kinged), tripled, quadrupled, etc. Ring stacks are found in weaves with multiples of captive, orbital, or reinforcing rings per cell. Voodoo, and Voodoo Hex each contain three-ring stacks at every junction, for example.

In two-ring stacks, each ring is the same. Exceptions occur with Kinged versions of certain weaves such as HP6-2, since there is an outside and inside ring in each pair, which are acted upon differently in terms of forces applied. Once a third ring is introduced to a stack it typically adds a second ring type. There is now one inner and two outer rings. A four ring stack adds another inner ring, but not a new type as it is part of an even pair. Five ring stacks add another ring type since they have an inner ring, two outer rings, and two intermediate ones. Under certain conditions, these rings are size-adjusted to compensate for what they are surrounded by, or what they surround. Ring stacks beyond three or four are uncommon. In circumstances where every ring in a stack is equally affected additional ring types are not present, no matter how many rings are in the stack.
