About This Weave

Byzantine looks so ornate and complex that people never fail to be surprised at how easy it is to weave. It's among the most versatile of all chain weaves. There are so many ways to use it and so many variations based on it that learning Byzantine really opens up a lot of options for the projects to follow. Byzantine is known by a variety of other names including Birdcage and Idiot's Delight.

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.


There's nothing in this section on any of the pages at the moment because it's taking a bit of time to assemble the photos, but it's going to be a gallery of what people have done with the weave or design.
