The Snowflake weave requires two ring sizes. The rings used in this tutorial are 14 gauge (.080”) 3/8” ID for the large rings, and 16 gauge (.062”) 3/16” ID for the small rings. To make one unit of Snowflake you will need five large rings and thirty-six small rings.

In this tutorial, purple rings are the new rings in each step, and silver rings are pre-existing.

Step one:
Start with sixteen small rings in units of two like this.

You now have a finished Snowflake unit!

To connect units together to form a sheet, place one large ring through two of the outer small rings from each Snowflake unit.

And just keep connecting them together in that manner.
