This is a pattern for a helm of mail, which I made from 4-in-1 rings, 14 ga, 3/8" and a pic of me wearing it is on the opening page of the mail section. It's a good exercise in gussetwork and is simple to make.

The measurement shown should be from your brow above your eyes to the point on the back of your head, at the same longitude. The circle, made from the one long strip and the six triangular strips, will be this length all the way round your head.
