Megara
Article © MAIL User: Corvus

Megara is a weave by Sara Reading and a Byzantine variation named after the ancient city in Attica Greece where the founders of Byzantium originated from.
Used here 1.2mm copper wire 6mm ID for the large rings and 1mm copper wire 4mm ID for the smaller rings (AR of 5 & AR of 4 are perfect for this weave (Ed - note different wire diameter used)).

Start with 4 closed and 8 open small rings.
