Persephone
Article © MAIL User: Corvus

Persephone is a weave by Sara Reading. It consists of 'Rhino-ed' single-connector Half Byzantine Plus One cells connected sideways.

I'm using bronze 0.9mm wire 4mm ID which is a perfect size for this weave (AR of 4.4).

Step 1
Create a single-connector Half Byzantine cell; usually this is done by making a 1-2-2 chain, folding the last ring pair back onto the central one, and adding the finishing ring. Don't worry about the fact that this cell is unstable and rings tend to flip over - it will be stabilized in the next step:

Step 2
Add an orbiting ring in the middle of the crossed 4 to create a Half Byzantine Rhino cell - like so:

Make several of these units.

Step 3
Add another ring onto the orbiting ring here:

Step 4
Add another ring the same way on the other side but don't close it yet. Use this same ring to join another unit like so:

Repeat this until you have the chain you want.
