Colorful Rondo a la Byzantine Instructions
Use aluminum and anodized aluminum rings to create the now classic Rondo a la Byzantine weave, my most popular weave. You'll combine two popular weaves—Helm with Byzantine—and will learn how to create a subtly reversible color scheme.

**Prerequisite - fluency with Helm Chain. Rondo a la Byzantine builds upon the Helm Chain weave, so you must know how to do that before beginning, as Helm is not stepped out in the tutorial. Check out our tutorial for Helm Chain: ** If you would like to purchase a hard copy of Helm, please message me!

Mhai O Mhai provides kits for this weave. Kits can be purchased here:

These instructions are in the form of a PDF and include 4 full-color, print-quality pages--detailing each and every step (after you've created your Helm Chain base) with clear, descriptive text and excellent photos--plus a cover page with ring counts and a final page with color planning ring counts and ideas. 6 pages in total! Both right- and left-handed PDFs are included.

This is an original pattern created by Rebeca Mojica for Blue Buddha Boutique.

    This one is a hard project. You need to have the right sized jumprings to build it. The tutorial is great, though.

    I am so thrilled that B3 has put their tutorials on Etsy! I found the original site after it had closed and was so disappointed! Thank you so much for continuing to share your patterns here! I can't wait to try the patterns I purchased!
