# AragonArticle © MAIL User: Catweazle

This is a tutorial for Aragon. This weave was submitted by AmyLeggett.
It is the sheet version of Abhainn.
"Abhainn" is gaelic for river and "Aragon" is a river in Spain.

For this tutorial I used 2 different ring sizes (WD/ID):
• small (brass): 1.0 mm / 4.0 mm (AR=4)
• large (aluminium): 1.0 mm / 5.0 mm (AR=5)

Step 0: Before we begin let's take a closer look at the weave.

• Below you can see an Aragon-bracelet.
• If you seperate the different chains from each other, you can see that Aragon consists of alternating 4-in-2-chains and 2-in-1-chains.
• Each chain represents one row in the Aragon-weave.

Now let's connect those chains step by step.

Step 01:
• First make a 2-2-2-2-chain from the small rings. Make it as long as you want. (This will be the second row of your workpiece.)
• Add a small ring to a ringpair.
• Pull another small ring through the neighbouring ringpair and the small ring from the last step.

Step 02:
• Repeat step one for the rest of the chain.
• Now you have finished the first and second row of your workpiece.

Step 3:
• 3rd row: Add a large ring on the other side of the original 4-in-2-chain.
• It is important that the two aluminium-rings, which are hanging in one brass-ringpair, are pointing in the same direction.

Step 4:
• Pull another large ring (alu) through the neighbouring ringpair and the first large ring.
• (The picture shows the same situation from two sides.)

Step 5:
• Now it is step 3 again. But this time the new ring also has to go through the large ring from step 4.

Step 6:
• Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the rest of your chain.
• (The picture shows the completed row from two different sides.)

Step 7:
• 4th row: In theory it's steps 3 to 5 again, but this time with small rings and you have to double them.

Step 8:
• Pull two small rings (brass) through the neighbouring large ring and the first ringpair of this row.
• (The picture shows the same situation from two sides.)

Step 9:
• Now it is step 7 again. But this time the new rings also have to go through the ringpair from step 8.
• Repeat steps 8 and 9 until you've finished the row.

Step 10:
• Add as many rows as you want.

Step 11:
• The last row has to be a 2-in-1-chain made of small rings. (Steps 1 and 2)

Step 12:
• If your workpiece is not long enough, just extend a single chain and start adding the other rows.

Weave long and prosper!
