Knitted Chainmail shirt

Unread post by Vasiliyi » Wed Aug 28, 2013 7:49 pm

This is something I did a few years back. I didn't use an anvil or a hammer for anything, but i did make all the rings myself and then knitted it all myself. Took all summer. I used 12 or 14 gauge galvanized wire, but as I knitted it, the zinc wore off.

It fits me just right, although it fits many people, because the rings expand. I hope to make a real one with rivets and all someday.
