Spiral 4 in 1
(CGI) [2]
Article © MAIL User: Big Vs Armory

This is a tutorial showing how to construct the Spiral 4 in 1 chain. Spiral is a beautiful chain that can be used with good effect in jewelry. However remember that it will un-spiral itself unless connected at the ends or to two fixed objects. It is also a fairly simple weave that is fast to make. The rings shown here have an AR of 5.

The red rings are the ones being added, the yellow ones are already there.

Step One:
Put a closed ring on an open link and close it like so:

Step Two:
Also fairly simple. Just place an open link on the two previous rings and close it, and you will have this:

Step Three:
Almost a repetition of step 2. Place an open ring through the last two rings you added, getting something looking like this:

Step Four:
Not really different, you have the hang of it now, add another ring to the last two!

Here’s what a finished Spiral chain will look like:

Remember, if your chain un-spirals itself, simply twist it to get it spiraled again, make sure you’re twisting the right way too.

Have fun with this great weave!
