This weave was created when searching for further connection possibilities of the Mercury basic cell. By application of a sideways expansion technique similar to e.g. Hoodoo I found what I looked for. Basically it is a Hoodoo chain variant with cell wings locked open by captured 1-1 chain segments.
Stats: The submission sample (shown in two orientations) is woven from BA 1.6mm coiled on 1/4" mandrel, sawcut, with a final AR of 4.2. It becomes completely stiff at 4.0; short two- or three-cell segments can be made even at a little lower AR. It can be woven at much higher ARs and remains geometrically stable locked, but becomes very floppy then - this is a major difference to Hoodoo, that 'falls apart' at too high ARs. Similar to Mercury, that allows higher-AR weaving if rings are kinged, this is possible here as well.
