Fourever Chain
Article © MAIL User: Catweazle

For this tutorial I used rings with the following specifications:
WD: 1.2 mm
ID: 6 mm
AR: AR of 5
Smallest possible AR: AR of 4

The knots in the Fourever Chain are a kinged version of a small Mobius Ball.

Step 1: For each knot you'll need 8 rings – 6 opened and 2 closed. Start with a 2-in2 chain.
