European 6 in 1: 45 Degree Seam 
Article © MAIL User: Aderamelech
Step 1- Construct two European 6-1 angles. Note particularly the number of rings on the edge of the angle. It is important to have just this number of rings. (With European weaves above 4-1 you can have differing numbers of rings along the edge.)
Step 2- Place an open ring through four rings on one angled piece as shown. It will then be placed through two rings on the second piece and closed. These rings are marked in red. (*Note, the picture is not correct, it shows the ring being placed through two then through four. Either way will work, however if you are using these instructions you should follow the text and make the required change.*)
Step 3- This shows the completion of the previous step. The ring you have just closed is marked with red, and the six rings you placed on it are blue.
Step 4- This step mirrors what you did in step 2. Were you took four rings from one side and two from the other, you will now take four. rings from the latter side and two from the former. The ring you have just finished in step 2 is marked with red. The ring you are including in this step is brass, and the six rings you are closing it on are marked with blue.
After that it's just a matter of moving down to the next connecting row and repeating the instructions.
