Art of Chainmail
Vol I - European Patterns
This book's focus is armor, not jewelry!
Expanding on the acclaimed teaching techniques of Dylon Whyte, the Art of Chainmail contains fully illustrated step-by-step instructions. The most complete European pattern guide in history, this book will teach you every nuance of European 4-in-1, from complex joins to elegant spiral reductions. A few advanced variations— including Box chain, King's Mail, and King's Mail with a Twist—are also covered.
If you are looking to make armor or chainmaille clothing, I highy recommend this book. Among many other topics, it covers shoulder attachments and reduction/expansion—both crucial if you are going to have a well-fitting piece. This book is also invaluable for those looking to learn European 4-in-1 or gain a deeper insight into the construction of European-based chainmaille patterns.
