I know this isn't really the place for a tutorial but I wanted to get it up before Halloween.

i used 0.048" (9)1/8", (2)5/32",(1) 3/16"
0.062" (1)5/16", (2)3/16"
all TRLs machine cut stainless steel.

the pictures are pretty self explanatory except i flipped the chain over between the 1st and 2nd picture.

That's awesome. Is it stable without the two top rings that do give the appearance of ears?
