Hello! I'm fairly new to chainmaille and was hoping someone would be able to identify this weave? I think it's beautiful and really want to try making it.

I couldn't get a picture to copy/paste for me Sad so here's the link:

Thank you for your help!

It looks like just a 2 in 1 chain with everything doubled and at a very small AR. I believe that the smaller chain that the clasp is attached to runs the length of the chain and keeps everything from falling apart.

It has the look of a persian chain, but from what I can see it is just a 2 in 1 connection.

I could be very wrong, but that is what it looks like to me.

yes, i think it's a 4 in 2 twisted up on a chain that goes through the middle.

I must agree.

It’s a kinged 2-1 chain (or 4-2), with some sort of stability changing component down the Middle; which seems like what the small chain seems to do.

Link: 2 in 1 Chain

Under the Persian label in the image is what you're interested in.
As others have already mentioned, there is a standard manufactured chain (often called curb chain) that stabilizes the weave to stay in its Persian form. Without this chain, inside it, the weave will be able to shift between any of the other examples shown.

Another visually similar, but doesn't require the stabilizing chain is Half Persian 4 in 1.
