How to Weave Half Persian 3-1
Half Persian 3-in-1 weave is a delicate chain great for simple jewelry. It's known as Half Persian because it can be made by extending only half of the Full Persian weave. Large rings work best with this weave. Suggested ring sizes are 5/16"-16swg, 1/4"-18swg, or 3/16"-20 gauge.
