Well....this shirt has been in the works since before theme contest #8. I finished it about 2 months ago and finally delivered it to my brother this past weekend.

The weave is Louhi in sheet form. 14ga, 5/16 AA, BA. I have no ring count nor actual construction time. He requested the Louhi weave and to have the lines be curved to blend neck and arm holes better. That took many, many attempts until I finally got it good enough.

Tutorials in one form or another are in the works and will be finished at some point...eventually...

The front:



Big Front


The back:



Big Back

I tried to get the smaller picture to appear in the thread, but for some reason the img code wasn't being very cooperative with me. I pasted the url, highlighted it, then pressed the Img button, it added the [ img ] stuff--as far as I could tell, the code was correct, but that wouldn't register in the preview. So I just linked it. Any ideas why the image thing didn't work?

Edited: Got small images to appear instead of links. Thanks TrenchCoatGuy (mmmm....Blood).
Edited again to get those pesky pictures to show....

For the image tag, the source must end in ".JPG" or another image file extension. Delete the stuff after .JPG in the links and it should work.

As for the shirt itself,

I'd love to see the pictures. Are they hosted on an image hosting site?

They are on a Google site. It worked for me in Chrome. Hopefully it now works for you. Thanks for the links again TrenchCoatGuy.
