Half Persian 3 Sheet 6 in 1

This is a very common weave, and a very nice looking one too, but I noticed MAIL didn't actually have its own article for it. There are others out there, but I figured it was about time to get our own.
The handedness affects whether you can go from left or right, or, alternately, with this method or reverse from it. I used 16g 3/8 rings here. The minimum AR I think is about 5.
1. Start with a strip of HP 3-1 (Half Persian 3 in 1). I intentionally used this handedness to allow me to go left to right.
2. Link an open ring through the eye of the top two left most rings and add two closed rings. Close the ring. Lay as shown.
3. Now you need to run an open ring as follows: through the eye of the two closed rings you added, around the eye below those two, and then through the eye of the two rings to the right in the first row. Because of the way I open my rings, I do this in reverse order so I can simply spin my ring through all the others in one relatively swift move.
Here is a view of the back of this maneuver.
4. Add a closed ring to the open one and close it. Lay as shown. Make sure your preclosed rings are stacking in the right direction!
5. Repeat this process. It can be difficult because of how many connections you are making at once, but with practice it will become natural.
6. When you get to the end, you don't add a preclosed ring, and there is also no eye to go through in the first row on the right side.
Congrats! This is not an easy weave to master. It has a lean to it, and also has interesting flexibility. Like all Persian weaves, it likes to spiral when folded.
