Jens Pind Chain Maille

I can't remember if I tried to do a Jens Pind pattern before or not.  If I did, it didn't stick in my head, because I must have flipped back and forth through four tutorials and still couldn't figure out the weave.

Here's what it looks like - complete with Dewey hairs and dust.  It's a nice weave, isn't it? 

This is a better view of the completed chain.
A big "thank you" to Crafty Cat Jump rings, who had the only tutorial that said Jens Pind is actually a spiral!  The picture to the right is the same chain, same weave!  Just hold both ends and twist!  Once I knew it was a spiral, it was really easy to put it together and if it got confusing again, I just twisted back into a spiral again and picked up the next part of the pattern.  So if anybody besides me didn't know all that and wants to do a Jens Pind weave, just find a spiral tute - it's a heck of a lot easier!


  1. I love the looks of this chain! Beautiful work!

  2. Like spiral looks when the gauge of the rings is thinner, when not it looks like the most in web.
