Each step in making this chain adds an open gold ring and a closed copper ring. Focus on the last 3 copper rings named 1-3 from left to right. Weave a ring down through the space where rings 1 and 2 intersect and bring the ring up through the third ring, add a closed ring and then close the ring. The copper and gold rings form the 2 distinct lines or planes of the weave. A gold ring never goes through another gold ring and the same with the copper rings. Both planes, the gold and copper, keep to the step pattern. The gold rings step pattern goes down so the last gold ring added is on the bottom of the step pattern. The copper rings step pattern is up so the last ring added is on the top of the step pattern. The order of the step pattern, whether it is going up or down will change when you flip the chain over, what matters is that it continues to be the same throughout.
