Scherzo
Article © MAIL User: Phong

Scherzo is kind of an ├╝ber-Byzantine. There are two main sizes for Scherzo. The large rings are 16swg 5/16" and the small rings are 20awg 3/16". If you find that those sizes are too floppy for your taste, you can make the two folded back rings a bit lower AR.

Step 1: Close four small rings and put them on a big ring.

Step 2: Put two small rings through all four small rings from the previous step. Fold the two new rings back so they're on either side of the large ring.

Step 3: Pass a small ring through the two rings you just added. This ring should go between the middle two rings of the group of four.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 with two more small rings. These should go through the remaining gaps in the group of four.

Step 5: Close four small rings and put them on a large ring. Pass the large ring through the three small rings from Steps 3 & 4.

Step 6: Pass two small rings through the next group of four, and fold them back.

Step 7: Pass a small ring through the two rings you just added, making sure it's in the middle of the group of four.

Step 8: Pass two more small rings through on either side of the ring you just added, connecting them to the two folded back rings.

Now just repeat Steps 5 - 8 until you get the chain as long as you want it!
