Barrel Weave is easy enough for a beginner and uses all the same round ring sizes as Byzantine.
These are the instructions for Barrel Weave and the ring sizes we recommend. Multiply the rpi (rings per inch) figures by the number of inches of chain you want to make, then use the Rings pulldown at the top of the page to order them. Or just get the kitpack.
As with all of our work, we invite you to make and sell as many of everything as you like, but ask that you don't publish our instructions or ring sizes.
