Because smokeydragon asked for it ...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For this tutorial I used rings with the following specifications:
WD: 1.2 mm
ID: 6 mm
AR: 5
Smallest possible AR: 4

The knots in the Fourever chain are a kinged version of a small mobius ball©

Step 1: For each knot you'll need 8 rings 6 opened and 2 closed. Start with a 2-in2 chain.

Step 2 Pull an open ring through the first ring-pair ...

Step 3: and then through the second.

Step 4: Close the ring and double it.

Step 5: Same procedure with the last 2 rings, but this time with 3 ring-pairs.

Step 6: Pull an open ring through 2 ring pairs

Step 7: and then through the third pair.

Step 8: Close the ring and double it.

Step 9: Connect knots with additional rings to a chain. But be aware that you may have problems when you are using an AR of 4 or 4.25.

Looks fine - thanks for providing the tutorial.

BTW: The AR data that I published in the weave DB submission are already verified, final closed-ring ones; feel free to use them in the finally published tutorial.

Human societies are like chain mail.
A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

Surely do I - I published that weave Smile
Using a tutorial for One and a Half Persian (AKA Apollo) like One and a Half Persian (Apollo) and Soyuz Tutorial, but using Shuttle's published AR is the basics to know. And then applying the instructions told in Shuttle's weave description, everybody should be able to weave it. Believe me - it's easy - easier as it looks at the first moment.
