Every ring goes through 4 others; 3 on one side and 1 on the other - similar to Oops. However, where Oops alternates (ie 3 left, 1 right - 1 left, 3 right - etc.); this weave is actually straight (ie 3 left, 1 right - 3 left, 1 right - etc.. Like Trinity, but 4-1).
I would suggest a minimum AR of 5 - however it looks better in a bigger AR (this tutorial uses an AR of 7).
Start by making a simple fivelet, with three rings added:
Then "spiral" those 8 rings in on itself, and lay them down like this (you don't have to open/close any rings for this):
To expand the first row to the right, add two closed rings and an open one, to the two upper rightmost rings in the previous step. This is like weaving [European 6 in 1], but only going through the top row (you leave the bottom one alone):
Continue like this to make a longer chain:
Because this weave tends to spiral like Trinity, you will probably end up with something like this, at some point:
In that case, spiral it back into shape until you have something like this again:
To add another row, all you have to do is add a closed ring and an open ring to 3 rings from the previous row.
This is very similar to Trinitymaille, but instead of going through 2 rings from the previous row, every open ring goes through 3 (plus a closed one):
Keep adding rings in a similar way. The more rows your piece has, the less it tends to spiral in on itself.
Keep weaving, and you'll end up with a nice piece of Quarnity!
