Helm Weave (also called Parallel Weave) Chainmaille is a simple and beautiful beginners’ design. This PDF download TUTORIAL with 22 pictures teaches you the EASY way to make this chainmaille design.
I have seen other tutorials for this design, and they show the hard and frustrating way to make this chainmaille weave. This tutorial draws from my years of experience to show you the easy way. If you are new to making chainmaille, or if you want to learn a better way to make Helm Weave, this photo tutorial will give you all the steps.
Note: if you plan to make more complex designs such as the amazing Rondo a la Byzantine, you absolutely need to learn this weave first. This design is the base design for several other weaves. But it’s pretty all by itself!
