Gridlock Byzantine
Article © MAIL User: Nearoth

Maybe the description given with Gridlock Byzantine might be enough, but if not, here's a short tutorial.

AR of 3.5
For the tutorial I used wire 1.3 mm and ID 4.5 mm (with springback that's AR 3.5).

Step 1:
First create a strand of Gridlock (the wave will become tighter so the strand will shrink).

Step 2:
Start adding extra rings (2-1) on the outside.

Step 3:
Fold the outside rings inwards.

Step 4:
Now the difficult part. From the bottom side, put a ring through rings in the following sequence: (The ring you're putting in is the red ring)
First, pass it through the blue ring (ring that's been folded inwards).
Second, through the two yellow rings (those are part of the gridlock).
Last, back out the blue.

Closing it can be hard.

When you're done both sides should look the same.
