Speedweaving European 8 in 1 Instructions

This is a pretty simple variation on the European 4 in 1 weave that makes the weave denser. NOTE: the way this sheet is built, is not the *correct* was for maille to hang, if hung the right way (90 degree turn as shown here), it will conform to the body.
The white rings are the newly added rings, The orange rings are ring(s) through which the new ring passes. The green rings are rings already added to the chain.
