Chain Maille Tie Tutorial | European 4-in-1 Weave

By on Thursday, September 21, 2017 2 Comments

Do you have someone who is hard to buy for?  Well, if the men in your life like chain maille, consider making them a cool tie!  Tim Shaw's tutorial shows how you can make one with the European 4-in-1 weave. Doesn't it look smart with a dark shirt!


It will not be heavy if you use aluminum rings. Avoid stainless steel unless you have strong hands! I especially like his easy method to make the tie's "knot".  He uses 18 G 1/4 inch rings.



He also has a super tutorial on the European 4-in-1 weave if you are not familiar with this.

  1. What an excellent teacher he is! I watched both videos and now have a good idea of how to actually do some chain maille.

    Too bad I didn't see this sooner. Hubby's birthday is on Saturday....sigh....I'm pretty sure I could never get it done in time for that.
