hello everyone! i've been scouring the internet for instructions on how to weave leather into this pattern:



I'd rather do it properly by weaving it, but I can't find the pattern for it anywhere. Does anyone have any suggestions or links?
Thanks, -SKF

On first look, that appears to be remarkably similar to the "candy wrapper" type bracelets. With two layers.

Clearly those are meant to be made from leather of some sort, but the same principles would likely apply. You might need to make a few stitches to hold each "link" in place.

If you've got an old bicycle tube you can achieve sort of the same look using that to weave in the candy-wrapper style.

It would end up looking something like this:
