Yes it can.

It's not easy, mind you, and can only be done 'properly' at a seam, not an in-row method like Euro... Basically stare at a sheet of it, and the method should jump out at you...

Since the person who (as far as I am aware) pioneered this method has expressed reluctance in the past to share the exact details, I won't divulge... But if I figured it out for myself by staring at the weave, you can too! (We've since compared notes and images, and successfully developed the same method, independantly of each other.)

I do have a suggestion about how to expand this weave in at least one direction. Imagine you had 5 HP 3-1 in chains that you weave together into a sheet. To expand that sheet to 6 chains just leave two of your initial five chains incompletely connected. You place your new chain between these two then weave it in. To contract in that direction, remove part of one chain, and attach the sheet together over the gap.
