Charm Linkage and Derivatives

First start with a 1 in 1 chain using rings with an AR of 3.16. Hold three links in between your fingers.
Then, twist. The direction you twist will affect the side of the chain that the charm cell ends up on.
Next, add an open ring through the 1st and 3rd rings of the three-ringed segment that you held in between your fingers in step 1. And then close.
You have just made a charm cell. This is what the chain will look like when the links are twisted the same direction.
A zig zag pattern will form when the 1 in 1 chain is twisted alternating directions.
When the tips of charm cells connect two chains of Charm Linkage this is the result.
For other examples of chains that can be made from Charm Linkage cells see Head Charm and Diamond Charms in the weave section.
