Box Chain

About the Weave

Box Chain is Byzantine with a step left out. While Byzantine's pattern is 2-2-2-Fold, Box Chain is 2-2-Fold. That little tweak completely changes the way the rings fit together, though, so Box Chain requires rings of a higher aspect ratio than Byzantine.

We teach Box Chain as a variation of Byzantine, so you must already know Byzantine for our instructions to make sense.
