Tri-Orbitwist is a spiraling chain by Coyote. Each segment has 8 rings. The rings used in this tutorial are 1.5 mm galvy rings with an ID of 10 mm (AR of 6.67). This makes a very loose weave. Maybe there is a faster way to make this weave, but this one is easy to make.
Connect 2 open rings to three closed rings (these are the only three pre-closed rings we’ll need).
Add one orbital ring.
Repeat for the other two sides.
Put a new ring through the two vertical rings. Make sure you go through both of them.
Repeat for the other two sides. Make sure you add them on the same side. In this example they are all right turning.
Put a ring through the three rings you added in step 3.
Double the ring you added in step 4.
Now add an orbital ring in the same way you added them in step 2.
Repeat this on the other two sides.
From the side it now looks like this. Notice that the orbital rings form a V-shape on the sides.
Repeat step 3 to 6 as many times as you want. If you keep adding the rings in step 3 on the same side, you will notice the chain starts to spiral.
This piece is 5 segments long:
