Take the two outer most rings (pair C) and flop them so that they are perpendicular to the next pair of rings (pair B) down.
You will attach your two rings to pair C, but pair B will flank your connecting ring: see photo! The open/connecting rings you attach in this step can be called pair D, but you'll see that they're actually a second iteration of pair A.
Before you close this new ring, put on a 2x2 unit! Now you can close the ring.
Now give it a partner ring. Make sure that this newest open ring goes through pair C, and the 2x2 unit as well.
This step sound really difficult and convoluted, but once you actually hook your ring onto pair C (between the legs of pair B), things fall into place. I promise.
But now, all you need to do to continue is to flop the outer most pair of rings on your newest 2x2 unit, use two open rings and attach another unit of 2x2!New Video! Now with color coded rings! And new background music!
Alright, here's a break down of what's happening in the video clip v.2:
- 2x2 units are constructed 2 copper + 2 gold. (It's hard to tell the color, but I consistently place new 2x2s so that the gold rings are the ones sticking out at the end.)
- Open rings that will be used as connectors are black.
- Black/open rings connect copper to gold.
- I point out where the black ring attaches to the gold rings by use of the bright blue twist-tie.
Whenever I finish adding a 2x2, the rings at the end are gold. My next open (black) ring hooks on to these gold rings, but watch how the rings have to be flipped first and then attached from between the copper rings of the 2x2 unit. (Or refer to photo set.)
Rings are 14g 3/8" bronze and anodized aluminum. The background music is Jack Hinks
, and later Trois navires de ble
by Great Big Sea
(I don't know if it's fully supplanted by v.2, but it's still here in case you can learn something else from it.)
Rings are 18g 3/16" bronze. The background music is Great Big Sea
