Description

This listing is for a PDF knitting pattern to make a Ball and Chain Flail. The pattern will be available for instant download.

The ball and chain flail, commonly mistakenly called a morning star or mace, is a medieval weapon, originally coming from an agricultural tool. It was designed to bash people hiding behind their shields. You will see how inaccurate and difficult it is to use as a weapon when you make one!

The handle, ball and spikes for the flail are all knit in the round and then sewn together. The chain links are knit as i-cord, then sewn together to form a chain.

Techniques used:
knitting and purling in the round, kfb increases, k2tog decreases, i-cord.

It is an abbreviated pattern with all abbreviations given, including instructions on how to work i-cord.

Materials used:
180m/195yds Worsted/aran weight yarn in black, brown and grey, or any yarn to achieve same gauge – 60m/65yds of each colour
4 dpns 4.5mm/Size 7
yarn needle
stitch marker
pins
stuffing
optional: chopstick and wool blanket/wadding/thick fabric

Gauge:
18 sts or 28 rows per 4”/10cm on 4.5mm/Size 7 needles in stocking stitch. It is important not to have a loose gauge as your stuffing will show through.

Finished Size:
22” x 6.5” x 6.5”/56cm x 17cm x 17cm
