i am looking for patterns for making yarn chainmail for knights. I would prefer to use worsted yarn as that is what I have in the right color with a slight sheen that would not need to be dyed. It is for adult males. Helmet, sleeves and leggings only required.

The only thing I could find was the hood, but maybe you can make up arm and leg warmer type things in the same texture.

Thank you, Jan,. I have the hood pattern already.. It might work but is a bit holey. I can probably adjust that by playing with different size needles and testing with the ever useful 4 inch square. I think I can also use a regular sleeve -pattern too but was hoping to be able to save experimentation.
