Helm Orb
(Pictures and CGI)
Article © MAIL User: Catweazle

This is a tutorial for Helm Orb by Neolythic.

There are 2 other tutorials for this weave.
Helm Orb by NeoLythic with photos and Helm Orb (CGI) by MaxumX with CGIs. The CGI-tutorial worked better for me, but - according to the tutorial - MaxumX never made it in real life. Only the CGIs. So I'll try a mixture of real photos and a few real CGIs.

For this tutorial I've used 3 different ring sizes (WD/ID):

You'll need 4 large rings, 10 medium rings and 18 small rings for 1 Helm Orb Unit.

Step 1:
Pull 1 large ring through 9 small rings.

Step 2:
Pull a medium sized ring through the same 9 small rings, so that it will lay parallel to the large ring.

Step 3:
Now you have to add a medium sized ring. It'll be an orbital ring around 3 small rings but it has to be positioned between the large and the medium sized ring.

Step 4:
Repeat step 3 two times. Now you have 3 orbital rings.

Step 5:
Turn the rings around and add a large ring through every set of small rings.

Step 6:
Turn the workpiece back and add a medium sized ring through every set of small rings.

Step 7:
Now the tricky part starts. Add a closed medium sized ring to a small ring, but don't close the small ring.
