Attica
Article © MAIL User: Catweazle

This is a tutorial for Attica.

I used 2 different ring sizes:

WD=1,0 mm / ID=4,0 mm (AR of 4)
WD=1,0 mm / ID=5,0 mm (AR of 5)

Step 1: Start with two 2-1-2-chains made out of the small rings and position them as shown in the picture.

Step 2: Put a large ring through 4 small vertical rings. (Through the rings which are on the inside.) Turn the weave around and repeat step 2. (The single rings from step 1 are now lying between the large rings.)

Step 3: Add a large ring to the second and third ring at the end of your weave.

Step 4: Add two small rings as shown in the picture. Turn the weave around and repeat step 4.

Step 5: The small rings and the large ring are overlapping. They are forming two "eyes". Put a small ring through each of the "eyes".

Step 6: Add a single small ring to the (overlaying) small ring pair at the outsides of the weave.

Step 7: Put a small ring through each of the ring pairs at the end of the weave.

Step 8: Now put a large ring through the second and third of the small rings. (This large ring is now positioned above the small rings from step 7.) Turn the weave around and repeat step 8.

Step 9: The small rings and the large rings are overlapping. They are forming two "eyes". Put a small ring through each of the "eyes".

Step 10: Add a single small ring to the small ring at the outsides of the weave.

Repeat steps 3 to 10 until your chain has the desired length.
