X-weave / Spring Chain / Forars Kaede
Article © MAIL User: Corvus
I've decided I need to rewrite this article so here it is.
Turn the chain 1/4 round for each ring you weave into it.
The cross section of the chain should look like this
Like JPL, Forars Kaede has overlapping rows of rings, JPL has 3 rows FK has 4.
Start by adding 2 closed rings to 1 open one and close it. 3 rings together 1-1.
Overlap the two closed rings like this.
Turn the chain 1/4 round towards you and put another ring in like this.
Put an open ring in following the green line up and under into the eye.
Turn the chain 1/4 towards you again and follow the green line with an open ring up and under through the eye.
Turn the chain 1/4 towards you again
and put an open ring in the eye again, just like before.
You should now be able to see the pattern.
Hope this tutorial is a bit better now.
