These are my second and third attempts at chainmaille, respectively. The first attempt was a swap gift, and involved lots of swearing. These went better.

All the rings were hand cut, using a 3.5mm knitting needle as a mandrel. The cuff is short, because it was a gift for my son, who is 7 - he thinks chainmaille is cool. Now my older son wants one, too.

Nice 4n1! Looks like you'll be busy for a while, making your older son one too! Cheesy

Very nice work.
Anyone who wants to learn maille, I send them to these 4 sites:
The ring lord forums
http://www.theringlord.org/forum/

M.A.I.L. International
http://www.mailleartisans.org/

Derakons library
http://derakon.chainmailstore.com/inst.html

Phong's Tutorials
http://cgmaille.com/

Between those 4 sites you'll never have to buy a pattern EVER. Cheesy
Have a nice day!

The links are great.  Tadd provided them to me in another post and they really got me going on chain maille.

Gorgeous cuffs.

You're so lucky.  This is the first weave I teach my students...it's the E4-in-1 ribbon, and it's so easy, you'll have it done in no time.

I assemble mine differently than this (this is much harder than the way I teach it), but it's still pretty easy.

And no, I won't post a tute for my way as I have a book coming out later this year that will include it.

Well be sure to promote the book, I know I'd be interested in having a handy dandy book around instead of always running to the internet.  I guess I am just old fashioned......I LOVE books.
