Byzantine Web
(Larger Connector Ring)
Article © MAIL User: Aderamelech

The basic concept behind Byzantine Web and most all other "web" style weaves, is to substitute chunks of a particular weave for some or all of the rings in a Japanese style design. In this case the weave is made by replacing the vertical rings in Japanese 3 in 1 with sections of Byzantine, while leaving the horizontal rings. You could use just about any Japanese based weave with any combination of other weaves.

1) I like the look you get when you use sections of Byzantine of this length (three cells) though any length could be used.

2) The sections are then joined up in staggered form, just as you would the individual chains in a Japanese 3-1 sheet.

3) The open pattern of hexagonal cells can be seen when you put some tension on the weave.

You may find for your purposes that it is easier to assemble the hexagonal cells and then link them up, but the effect is the same in either case.
