Okay, this weave can't be too hard to learn, but since we always want to help anyone who might need it, here's a tutorial for Gridlock. Note the difference between this and European 4 in 1: one set of rings isn't angled, it's laid flat and alternates top and bottom.

1. Create a fivlet, but lay the rings out like this (they might not hold up right away).

2. Add a new ring through the two on the right and add two closed rings.

3. So far, it will probably lie like regular Euro 4-1, if the angled rings fall to the right. Here's where we fix that. Put a new ring through the two shown, but under the previous flat ring. In Euro 4-1, it would go on top again, and maintain a lean.

4. Add rings on top and on bottom like so, with 2 closed rings added each time. You will get a chain like this.

5. You can expand this into a sheet by adding flat rings and a new row of angled rings.

I hope this isn't too simply written or hastily rendered for anyone.
