Stitching Box Chain
This weave is a simple variation of the normal European 4 in 1. It makes great looking chains and can be converted to a sheet.
Silver rings are rings being added to the weave at the step. Brass-yellow rings are the rings the new ones pass through. Copper-red rings are idle rings at the step. Gold rings are rings needing further noting.
The rings in this tutorial have an AR of 5.
1. Make a strip of European 4in1. Note that the Boxchain will be shorter than the starting patch:
2. Fold the four rings, colored gold, at the bottom of the 4in1 patch upwards, so that the result will look like this:
3. Pass a new ring through the four rings you folded. Note how the ring holding the fivelet has moved:
4. Fold the next pair of rings, again marked in gold:
5. Pass a new ring through the two rings you folded and the two topmost rings of the last box:
6. Continue stitching the 4in1 patch until you reach its top. Add a ring or two to hold the upper box in place. Two rings will make it completely symmetrical:
