Also, is the use of the phrases 0-dimensional, 1-dimensional, 2-dimensional accurate here? Not to be overly precise... but these all have 3 dimensions, although the point is made...


The dimensional aspect of those descriptions is in regards to the dimensional expansion of those forms. A unit weave does not expand, thus it is a 0-dimensional weave; chains and bands only expand in the length of the weaves, thus they are 1-dimensional weave forms; sheet, web, and radial expand in length and width and so are 2-dimensional weave forms, and, of course, 3D weaves expand in all directions (length, width, and depth/height).

For a weave to be tagged 'band', would that necessarily mean that it could NOT be made as a 'chain'; in other words, would a 'band' be the smallest unit of that weave? The example pictured above makes me ask.


As ZiLi has said, 'band' is not an easy thing to completely answer. To some, 'bands' are simply wide chains, while to others, they are narrow strips of sheets. To me, they are a quasi-form that exists between sheet and chain. To wide to be seen as a chain, to narrow to be a sheet. Some, may be able to be made wider into sheets, but never thinner into chains.

Good explanation of the usage of 'dimension', thank you. 'Dimensional expansion', got it!

And thanks also ZiLi and Narrina for the 'band' definition. I like the last part especially, that a 'band' can never be made thinner into a chain--- that answers that question.

The familial definitions seem a bit too general. I like the expansion terms, though.

I think limiting orbital and captive to being defined as non-structural is not accurate. I'm also not convinced that Rhino and Helm necessarily needed to be specially defined. Unless those are maybe structural definitions? Definitions of particular structures within a weave?

Alpha is a good idea. I would have used a different term than modification for a structural change, but I only came to that conclusion recently. Other than that, those two situations being defined is good thing, although, again, I think they are a bit general. Now define structural Smile

I'm not sure I see the difference between berus and mage the than one is a weave and one is in a weave.

Things like kinged and progression ought to start out with something like "A variant/modification in which...".

I wonder, besides european 4 in 1 and other weves like 2 in 1, wich other weave is easy for a beginner to learn?

I mean, i'll start by the simple, but, on the following... wich weave shall i do?

After i get used with the 4 in 1 european, can i jump to a japanese weave for example?

thanks! Smile

Why not? Feel absolutely free to try what you think is manageable with given ring collection. There are no limits. For building a solid basis portfolio I'd propose to work through the 'Alpha' tagged weaves.

Zili is right, try anything that catches your eye. But just for information's sake, there is also a "beginner" tag for weaves. That's also a good place to start.
