One and a Half Half Persian 3 in 1
(CGI)
Article © MAIL User: Andrew

"One and a Half Half Persian 3 in 1" is a weave invented by me :D Sorry for the long and technical name. but it really is 1 and a 1/2 hp 3in1 (Half Persian 3 in 1) chains.
An hp 3in1 chain has 2 different grains, whereas this weave has 3 different grains.

I recommend an AR of around 5.8

In this tutorial I have colour coded the rows:
Orange and blue (the starting hp 3in1 chain)
and the rings which you add are in red.

Step 1
Make an hp 3in1 chain like this. If your chain is of the other handedness and you dont feel like making another hp 3in1 chain you can save these images onto your desktop and flip them around in MS-Paint or some other photo editing program. It might be a bit more confusing.

Step 2
Now it's time to add a ring (RED) make sure this ring goes through the eye of the first 2 "blue" rings and around the eye of the first 2 "orange" rings like so...

Step 3
Now add another ring, but this time it goes around the eye of the first 2 "blue" rings, through the eye of the 2nd and 3rd "blue" rings, through the eye of the first 2 "orange" rings and lastly around the eye of the 2nd and 3rd "orange" rings. It's ok if you got really confused there, don't worry, I would expect most people to. Just read it a few more times, look at the picture and give it a try. Once you get it the next step will be easy.

Step 4
Ok now repeat step 3 :P. Keep repeating till you reach the end of your chain.

Done!
Hope you had fun and managed to end up with a nice piece of this really cool chain.
