The links used in the example are 1/4" id 16g Bright Aluminum. An AR of 4.4 ratio works pretty well. I've used 1/8" 20g stainless and that turned out well, too.
1. 16 open links, 16 closed.
2. Make the chain shown in the picture, taking care that the loose links are all on the same side.
3. Pull the 4 sets of spare links through like a Byzantine chain. I only do this with one link at this point, and add the last 4 links as a final touch. This helps the tension in the tighter ARs.
4. Connect one end of the chain to the other.
Ta-da! Now you can make these units and connect them to themselves or other things.
