A long awaited tutorial on how to make a Mayle Star. I am using a large centre ring to give a better view. I use mayle since its the most commonly used word for "chainmaille" before the victorians got their way with the word)
3 different link sizes. 1 centre ring (can be any size)
See how many links fit around the central ring
Make sure the smallest ring doesnt quite fit through the surround links otherwise it wont work.
Join the surround rings with 1 of the small link and then start to connect each of them to the centre ring with 2 of the small links in the pic (med-sm-med-sm-med etc)
link the centre ring with 2 sm links on each surround ring
add a further 2 sml link into each of the mediul surround rings
add a medium ring into the 4 connecting links ensuring that the med is inbetween 2 surround rings (sort of overlap) Do so right round the piece then flip the mayle over
do the same on the other side.
