USEFUL TIPS BEFORE YOU START:





1.
The rings used to make the weave are the id 6.7mm, 1.2mm rings apart from the two small rings used to attach the clasp.

Link one champagne ring to two closed champagne rings. Lay out the rings exactly as shown in the left hand picture below with the rings in the same orientation.

Weave one ice blue ring through the upper outer champagne ring and the intersection of the lower outer and central champagne rings. Lay out the rings as shown (centre picture).

The next ring added is shown in red. Weave a second ice blue ring in front of the last ring added, and through the lower outer champagne ring and the intersection of the upper outer and central champagne rings (right hand picture).

step 1

2.
The left hand picture shows what your weave should look like after completing step 1.

The next ring added is shown in red. Weave one champagne ring through the outer parts of the ice blue rings added in the last step (centre picture).

The right hand picture shows what your weave should look like having added the above ring.

step 2

3.
The next two rings added are shown in red. Both rings are woven through the same pathway with one folded up and the other folded down. Study the left hand and centre pictures to see the pathway.

Weave one champagne ring behind the centre champagne ring added in the previous step, through the intersection of the two ice blue rings and through the centre champagne ring so that the ring you are weaving is now in front of the centre champagne ring (left hand picture).

Weave a second champagne ring in the same way - behind the centre champagne ring added in the previous step, through the intersection of the two ice blue rings and through the centre champagne ring so that the ring you are weaving is now in front of the centre champagne ring (centre picture). Position the two rings added as shown.

The right hand picture shows what your weave should look like having added the above rings.

step 3

4.
TURN THE WEAVE OVER. Compare the last picture in step 3 to the 1st picture in step 4. You turn the weave to make it easier to link the ice blue rings.

The next two rings added are shown in red. Weave one ice blue ring through the lower outer champagne ring and the intersection of the upper outer and central champagne rings (2nd picture).

Weave a second ice blue ring in front of the last ring added, and through the upper outer champagne ring and the intersection of the lower outer and central champagne rings (3rd picture).

The right hand picture shows what your weave should look like having added the above rings.

step 4

5.
TURN THE WEAVE OVER. Compare the last picture in step 4 to the left hand in step 5. You turn the weave to make it easier to link the three champagne rings in the next two steps.

The next ring added is shown in red. Weave one champagne ring through the outer parts of the ice blue rings added in the last step (centre picture).

The right hand picture shows what your weave should look like having added the above ring.

step 5

6.
The next two rings added are shown in red - this step is the same as step 3.
Weave one champagne ring behind the centre champagne ring added in the previous step, through the intersection of the two ice blue rings and through the centre champagne ring so that the ring you are weaving is now in front of the centre champagne ring.
Weave a second champagne ring in the same way - behind the centre champagne ring added in the previous step, through the intersection of the two ice blue rings and through the centre champagne ring so that the ring you are weaving is now in front of the centre champagne ring (left hand picture). Position the two rings added as shown.

The right hand picture shows what your weave should look like having added the above rings.

step 6

7.

Variations

  • For a classy look, try champagne with matt silver (white) rings.
  • Use more colours for the central rings (ice blue in the project) - a pastel or rainbow mix with black rings instead of champagne.
  • Use two alternate colours for the centre rings, like black and red with gold rings.
