Dragonscale by zikes Dragonscale by zikes
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

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

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. :)
