Byzantine Variant 2 and Byzantine X(CGI)Article © MAIL User: Dark Dragon

To make the Byzantine Variant 2 and Byzantine X weaves you will need at least two or three different ring sizes. In this guide I used three, 3/8”(gray), 1/4”(red), and 3/16”(blue) rings all in 18swg.

The first step is to make several units of rings consisting of one 3/8” ring and four 3/16” rings.

The next step is to connect these units into a chain. To do this use two 1/4” rings. They both have to go through four of the 3/16” rings and sandwich the 3/8” rings in between. Make sure that the 1/4” rings go through the 3/16” rings the right way. It should look like this.

Here’s another view showing how it should look.

Now continue adding units of rings…

until you get to the length you want.

This step is not hard to do but is kind of hard to explain. You have to use 3/16” rings to go through two of the 3/16” rings and a 3/8” ring at the same time. The new rings will have to be slanted to go through all the rings. This picture should help a little.

Here’s a better view showing how the rings go together. Note that the ring on the other side is slanted the other way.

Now continue adding 3/16” rings all along the sides until you’re done and that’s it for Byzantine Variant 2.

To make Byzantine X take your strip of Byzantine Variant 2 and add a vertical 1/4” ring inside a 3/8” ring and connecting the two slanted 3/16” rings so it looks like this.

Then add 1/4" rings inside all the 3/8” rings and you’re done with Byzantine X.
