Dragonscale...with a name like that you know it has to kick ass :)

So named because it has two ring sizes, and the larger rings overlap in a way that makes them look like scales. The effect is difficult to see with these particular ring sizes, and the fact that I have it stretched out doesn't help it either, but trust me they look like scales ;)

Maybe I'll post another scan later...

I'll agree that I love d-scale over many other weaves. I like the way 3/16 & 1/8 feels and even looks when in color. Here is some of my recent work with dragonscale. Not bad considering the start of the summer I never did anything but then my first project was 6-in-1 and these two were done most recently; projects three and four.

Dragonscale's definitely my favorite weave, and the fact that it has the most kick-ass name of the weaves is a big plus :D

Nice pattern. Do you have any direction to tutorials on how to do it?

Thanks. I've been wanting to try the pattern, but couldn't find any good tutorials.

That is kick ass! I can see how they look like scales. What is this going to be and what would you say the size is?

ahh, keep forgetting to include the size information :ohmygod:
hmm...I don't have a ruler handy but from looking at the patch I'd estimate it's about 4-5 inches long, but then I'm absolutely no good at estimating lengths
I'll dig up a ruler and throw the exact dimensions in the description later :)
this is just a patch I did while learning the weave, so I won't be turning this particular patch into anything, but I am working on creating a full vest out of dragonscale right now :D

A whole vest?!?! That's amazing! Oh I'm so excited now, I can't wait to see it!!!!!

Oh that one's gonna take a while, my first (well, second, but the first one was a crappy quick one) took me about 3 months to do. The dragonscale one will take at least 4-5 more months.

I am working on getting some decent pictures of my current vest, though. :)
