Half Persian 2-1 sheet 4 is an interesting sheet weave based on the 2-1 Half Persian chain (a unique beast to be sure). The sheet version tends to curl in on itself, making it a poor choice for armor or other clothing. However, it is one of the "simplest" of the HP sheet weaves, as it is a four in one weave. Simple in this case does not mean easy to make; this weave can be quite tricky. But it's one of the better ones to know, if you're planning of fleshing out your weave library.
For these instructions, silver rings are new open rings. They carry copper (closed) closed rings and pass through brass rings already in the weave. Black (annealed steel) rings are not involved in the current step.
Step 1: Pass four closed rings onto an open ring, Close the ring and lay the group out as shown.
Step 2: Place two closed rings onto an open ring. Pass the ring through the rightmost closed rings from the previous step.
Step 3: Continue that step to lengthen the chain. Make it slightly longer than the final sheet should be wide, as adding the next row will constrict the weave slightly.
Step 4: Go back to the front of the chain. Place two closed rings on an open ring. Pass the ring through the two leftmost bottom rings on the chain.
Step 5: Place a single closed ring on an open ring. Pass the ring through the rightmost closed ring from the previous step and two closed rings from the chain above.
Step 6: Continue that step to the end of the chain.
That's it! This is by no means a simple chain. If you disturb the weave,
especially at the beginning, you may find yourself with a mess instead of a
chain. The larger you make the patch, the more stable it becomes. Good luck!
