Chainmail Hand Guard by Thy-Darkest-Hour Chainmail Hand Guard by Thy-Darkest-Hour
For Part B of the contest at #CRArtisanCrafts

I followed this wonderful tutorial (see below) and made it longer and less of a triangular shape at the bottom while lacing it differently and adding regular links between the bottom tabs to make it more stable.

This is fantastic! Well done! :) Thank you so much for using my tutorial AND entering the contest. It looks amazing. :+fav:
It is a very simple weave isn't it... and can get quite addictive.

I just now finished downloading it :D I may give it a try if I have some smaller rings, I think I'd make it a link or two thinner for a more feminine look.
