(CGI; Preclose Large Rings)
Article © MAIL User: DeadManWalking

These are the instructions for creating Dragonscale.
Red links are the current step and blue are the previous step
First off, you need to have 2 ring sizes, one being able to fit in the other with room to spare, I use 17 gauge 3/16" and 3/8".

Step 1: Make a 1-2-2 chain alternating ring sizes.

Step 2: Next, place closed large links over the small links as shown
note: They are not connected to anything yet.
You may want to do this one at a time in conjunction with the next step.

Step 3: Now connect large links to the small rings, trapping the other links inside.

Step 4: Connect the trapped large links to each other using small links.

Step 5: At this point, I usually like to add the connecting links to the top row.

Step 6: Attach large links to the connectors (not the links you just added, but the links from step 4).

Repeat steps 5&6 to lengthen the piece.

Okay, I hope I didn't confuse you too much.
