Boxmail How to. For this weave we will be using 2 ring sizes: 16g 5/16" for the inner (horizontal rings) and 16g 1/4" for the outer (vertical) rings.

Step one: Start with a section of Box Chain made from the two ring sizes. For instructions on boxchain weave, see the articles section; there are a couple of good ones in there.
