INTERMEDIATE level chainmaille project

by Amy Leggett

Twist and weave your way through a chainmaille bracelet creation with a fun edge! Mngwa was named after the large mythical cat creature from Swahili fairy tales. Like the myth's creature, it was a mysterious beautiful weave that no one had yet discovered. Since Blue Buddha debuted the tutorial for this weave in 2014, it's become a popular chainmaille weave.

Designed by Amy Leggett of The Metalmark, Mngwa is an Intermediate-level weave closely related to Vipera Berus.  

Prerequisite: Proficiency in at least 3 chainmaille weaves, including ability to create a 2-2-2 chain. Knowledge of Vipera Berus is helpful but not required

6 full-color, high-resolution, print-quality pages are included, detailing each and every step with clear, descriptive text and excellent photos.

This is in the form of a PDF, which can be automatically downloaded via Etsy's downloads page. You will receive an email with instructions for how to download the PDF. Both left- and right-handed PDFs are included with your download.

BB always has quality and easy to follow tutorials. This is no exception. Unfortunately, I thought I already had the rings to make this bracelet but it turns out I don’t - so I will be ordering those soon!
