Hello, my name is Molly Petunia Terwicky...   => M.P.T.
(Get it?)

Note: As you can see with the 4-in-1 and 6-in-1 patterns (not Japanese), the higher the initial number, the denser the weave. It is theoretically possible to make a weave with "X"-in-1, where x is any even number greater than 4. This could be accomplished to very high numbers, given the right combination of wire diameter and link diameter. We have used this thinking to create small pieces of 10-in-1, and would be pleased to try to make something useful out of it. Exactly what is up to you!
KLC Special means that the weave is an original combination of links by the artisans at KLC, a new weave.


Comparison of rings.    Picture showing relative link sizes in comparison to a US penny. Links shown are life-sized when viewed at 1024x768 DPI screen resolution.

Approximate link size, in inches, clockwise from small red link:
1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1".
These links are also known as: Micro, Baby, Robyn's Shirt, Shirt, Monster, and Way Too Big, respectively.
