Hoodoo Hex Seam Example
This is a quick example of how I did the seaming on my sandwiched hoodoo hex pattern.
I whipped this up as Cinnibar_ on reddit was asking how I handled the seams.

As a side note, you get to see my little titanium fidget that was made with the remnants of my false start on my bag.
It is eight hex units wide on each side. Haven't bothered to count links.

The green/blue is used to hilight how some corners a one orientation, and the others are another.

Hoodoo Hex Bag - Digital Mockup
This is a mockup I made to assist with link count, and just generally show off the pattern.
As you can see there the bag is two halves sandwiched together.

There are 3554 links in total.
Not show is how the closure is looped.

Hoodoo Hex Weave Bag - Brass 20ga - Empty
This bag took... a while to make.
Sadly I had a bit of a false start, as I unwisely started with some titanium I had on hand...
but when I ordered more to continue the new links were a different size (and were actually matching the listed size now).

Anyway, this is done with 20ga 7/64" brass links, with an AR of 3.5 .
With hoodoo hex weave an AR of 3 is considered "optimal" -- if stiff -- but larger AR's can be used.
The extra 0.5 to the AR gives the weave a nice flexible/flowing feel.
This also means the bag has a noticeable amount of stretch in all directions, but when full mostly has a balance.

I really like how the seam between the two halves is... seamless XD, aside from the three corners.

According to my link math (assisted by my digital mock up), there are 3554 links.

The closure of this bag was first for me, in that I did a wrap over to form a loop of the weave.
It took some rework to get it right... 

Each closure is secured by five links.

While working on this bag I came up with a theory on bag closure ratio.
Based on some of my previous bags, and the math I did on this bag, I thing that a 4:1 ratio of links (for every four links in the body, use one link at the tip of the closure) leads to a decent close.

Hoodoo Hex Weave Bracelet - 22ga Stainless Steel
This is a fine little bracelet made with Hoodoo Hex weave.
It is three rows wide, though the last link on each side was left off for a better aesthetic.
There are 503 Stainless Steel 22ga 5/64" AR3.4 links used.

With the AR3.4 this weave is a bit lose (optimal AR would be 3), and can be bunched up in a fun way.

Since the finishing link on each side was left off, it is possible for the bracelet to kink up a bit... but it can be smoothed out again.
