Inverted Spiral
Article © MAIL User: lorraine

I used Christmas colors because I was making ornaments. :D The rings are 16awg (1.3mm)/6.0mm enameled copper. An AR of 4.5 works great for Inverted Spiral.

Step 1.
Start with two 1-1 chains.

Step 2.
Keeping them spiraled in the same direction, put them on top of each other, and add a different colored ring to the two red ones and the two green ones.

Step 3.
Put a twisty through the two gold rings. The gold rings and the twisty are just to give you something to hold onto in the beginning. It's cheating, but I don't care. :D

Step 4.
Squeeze the end flat and you have two green on one side and two red on the other.

Step 5.
Put a green ring through the two green rings and a red ring through the two red rings and close.

Step 6.
Put a red ring through the two rings with the yellow dots.

Step 7.
Turn the chain so that the red side is closest. Put a green ring through the rings with the yellow dots. (The ring with the blue dot is the one added in step 6.)

Step 8.
Now you start repeating steps 4-7.
Squeeze together.
