You do understand how to make a hourglass unit? If so skip this first part.
http://www.mailleartisans.org/weaves/subcat.cgi?key=6428
Start by making a chain of 3 rings euro 1 in 2 and connect the last 2 rings with another so you have a circle.
Now hold to oposide rings and pull (these are the two horizontal rings in the pic of Hour Glass unit in waves)
Add four more rings. these should not go through any of the other rings but only "clap" onto then like thunderbolt.

I'll try to make a real tutorial for ya some time soon.

Make several units
Now put a ring through one of the horizontal rings on the outside of one of the last four rings we've added. Do the same with the still opened ring to another unit.
Do the same fot the opposing side of the unit and keep repeating till you can close the patern.
Don't force it. The first time I tried a cross it took 5 units instead of 4.
Furthermore if you have pinch cuts in your rings the patern can inerlock deu to strain in ways you don't want them to.
I hope this is somewhat usefull to you if now pm me.
I'll try to make a tutorial sometime soon.
