Daisy Chain 1
Although this was, if I remember correctly my third experiment with these rings, it received the "1" designation because I felt that because I arrived at it by removing rings from Daisy Chain 2, it made it a more basic or core weave. Well, something like that, anyway. Or, more simply, because it seemed logical to do so compared to the other ideas I was messing with at the time.
Daisy Chain 1 can be fairly easily perceived in (at least) three ways:
1)Three ring mobiuses connected directly to each other. This is the perception I developed it under.
2)1:1 or 2-1 (1 TO 1 or 2 IN 1) chain with AE rings around every other intersection.
3)JPL missing one ring out of every 4.
Daisy Chain 1 was so named because of the fact that mobiuses, and especially 3 ring mobiuses (that may just be my perception), are often referred to as flowers.
This sample was made from salvaged 12AWG (.0808") copper electrical wire coiled around a 3/16" mandrel and cut with a 6/0 jeweler's saw. The nominal AR using listed numbers is 2.321. The measured AR using a dial caliper with .001" increment is: 2.278.
At the AR of the sample in the image, this weave has great flexibility. Raising the AR will, of course, change the appearance and behavior of this weave. It may be possible to tweak the AR downwards a little more, as well, and still have a decently usable chain.
My measurements were performed as described in Aspect Ratio Studies by Blaise.
