Flat Full Persian 5 in 1 Chain
Article © MAIL User: Andrew

Flat Full Persian 5 in 1 Chain.
This weave is more flexible than Full Persian 6 in 1 and lays flatter as bracelets and necklaces etc.

(EDIT (ZiLi): This weave works well down to an AR of ~5.3; the imho optimal range is between 5.5 and 6; I tested up to 6.8, that remained looking well)

In this tutorial i have colour coded the different rows.
Red and blue (starting Half Persian 3 in 1 chain) and green and yellow.

Step 1
Start off with a chain of hp 3in1 lying upside down.

Step 2
Add 1 ring around each eye in the "blue" row. When you've done that, position them so that they are all lying in a perpendicular direction to the red rings.

Step 3
Add a ring that goes through the eye of the first 2 "green" rings and around the eye of the first 2 "red" rings.

Step 4
Add another ring, but this time it goes around the eye of the first 2 "green" rings then through the eye of the 2nd and 3rd "green" rings and then around the eye of the 2nd and 3rd "red" rings.

The yellow and green rings should be starting to form an hp 3in1 chain now, keep it up.

Step 5
Repeat step 4 until you have reached the end of your chain, good luck.

I hope you had fun and managed to learn this awesome weave.
