Spiral 8 in 1
Article © MAIL User: starwriter34

Making Spiral 8 in 1 is just like making the other spiral weaves. With Spiral 4 in 1 you link through the last 2, with Spiral 6 in 1 you link through the last 3, with Spiral 8in1 you link through the last 4. If I were to guess which ring size to use it would be 18ga 5/16" or 16ga 3/8", but I don't know yet. I will update this tutorial when I have a good size. The Golden rings are the old rings, the Silver is the current step. The renderings use an AR of 12.5.

Step 1: Create a 4 ring mobius ball like the image below.

Step 2: Now instead of passing through only the last 2 rings go through the last 4 as seen in the picture below, with the silver ring.

Continuing the chain, pass through the last 4 rings till you get to the length you want.

I hope this helps you to figure out this weave. It's very simple but a pain in the tail end to get started..
