Ruffles is a variant of Helm Chain that adds side rings to give some extra pizzazz. Ruffles takes 3 ring sizes. Two ring sizes to make Helm Chain, then additional, smaller rings for the sides. AR's of AR of 6.9 (large), AR of 4.5 (medium) and AR of 3.7 (small) will work though the sides will be scrunched together somewhat.

Step 1: Make a 2-1 chain as long as you want the final piece to be, using large and medium rings.

Step 2: Place large rings around the doubled medium rings. The new large rings should not pass through any rings at this point.

Step 3: Pass open large rings through the doubled medium rings, trapping the rings from the previous step. This makes Helm Chain.

Step 4: Put small rings through the 3 layers of large rings, in the eye formed by the top/bottom and middle layers.

Step 5: Put a small ring through each of the rings added in the previous step.
