If you have made Centipede before you should find this much easier.
This method of making Fishy Spine is slow and probably hard for some people, but it's the only method I know of.
I've colour coded the rows.
Row 1 : orange
Row 2 : purple
Row 3 : green
Row 4 : blue
The red glowing rods are used to help hold the weave together, but you could always use a small mandrel or some wire instead.
step 1: get some preclosed rings and put them on the glowing rod. The more rings, the longer the finished chain will be.
step 2: now add a ring through the eye of the first 2 rings.
step 3: do it again...
step 4: repeat until you get to the end. Then put a glowing rod through that row so that it holds together.
step 5: add 1 ring to each ring on "the purple row" like so...
step 6: keep going. . . Now put a glowing rod through that row to help hold it together.
step 7: pull the rod going through the green rings up so it lifts the row up, and place it down so that the green rings lay in-between the yellow rings like shown in step 8.
step 9: now join the orange row to the green row like this... through 1 ring on the orange row and through 2 rings on the green row.
step 10: keep going till you get to the end. now you should be able to take the magical red glowing rods out and it should be stable enough.
okie doke i hope you were able to understand that.
I almost forgot, while I was making this tutorial I got a bit distracted and made this. Hope you like it.
