Reader Gay found my blog through my Full Persian chain maille video on Youtube. It proved enormously useful enabling her to complete her bracelet.
In her email she also asked, " I am desperately looking for a video on "Turkish Round" but can't find one anywhere. I bought a book with the pattern in it but cannot figure it out this way! "
I can see why Gay found a book pattern difficult to fathom. Many people learn chain maille better from a video or an instructor in a class. That's because the instructor can demonstrate the little tricks it takes to accomplish a weave.
The good news is there is indeed a Youtube video already for the Turkish Round Maille, a delightful pattern featuring sets of 3 rings. The video by Beadaholique has been labelled as Round Maille Weave which may not have been obvious to searchers. (If you are a tutorial designer, please make sure you title tutorials well so search engines can locate it easily.)
You will have to "cup" the project with your fingers as Andrea, the instructor does. With practice, it will get easier. If you are having trouble with this, try working with two colors like the instructor until you get the hang of it.
I also like this static tutorial by cohort from M.A.I. L - Maille Artisans International League. You can get a whole ton of free tutorials from this site.
