You can find tutorials here (there is more than one tutorial for each weave)
You need two ring sizes for this weave. redpanda also used two different wire diameters.
In this tutorial I'll need two ring sizes, but only one wire diameter:
- 1.0 mm / 2.5 mm (AR of 2.5) (bronze)
- 1.0 mm / 4.5 mm (AR of 4.5) (V2A)
In the following picture you can see three Byzanclean-chains with the following ring parameters:
- upper chain: bronze - 0.8 mm / 2.5 mm AR of 3.125 & brass - 1.0 mm / 4.25 mm AR of 4.25
- middle chain: bronze - 1.0 mm / 2.5 mm AR of 2.5 & V2A - 1.0 mm / 4.5 mm AR of 4.5
- lower chain: bronze - 0.8 mm / 2.75 mm AR of 3.44 & bronze - 1.0 mm / 4.25 mm AR of 4.25
There are two requirements for the two ring sizes:
- 1 small ring has to fit into 1 large ring (left).
- 4 large rings have to go through 2 small ring (right). (It is also ok to use only 1 small ring.)
- Start with a 2-2-2 (large-small-large) chain like you see it in the upper picture on the right side.
- BTW you need only 2 small rings for 1 unit of Byzanclean.
- Add an orbital ring around the small rings.
- Turn the large rings around, so that your work piece looks like an X.
- The next large ring has to be pulled through the rings marked with green dots.
- You can see the result of step 3 on the left side. I've marked the same rings with green dots, because I've turned the work piece 90°.
- Repeat step 3 on the other side of the same rings (right)
- Pull a large ring through the 2 rings which you've added in steps 3 & 4.
- Double it. Now you've made a byzantine cage.
- Repeat steps 3 - 5 on the other side.
- You've successfully woven a unit of Byzanclean.
Feel free to make bracelets, chains, pendants or earrings. You can even add beads and make some sort of romanov chain.
Weave long and prosper!
