If you’re a fan of The Lord of the Rings movies, you’ve seen the European 4-in-1 weave. European weaves consist of adjacent rows of rings oriented in alternating directions. As the 4-in-1 name suggests, each link in the weave passes through 4 others, but variations abound, including 6-in-1, 8-in-1, and King’s Maille, which is made by adding jump rings in pairs.

Typically, this hiccup is not noticeable until some length of chain has been woven. Rather than backing out jump rings and starting again, I recommend that you just keep going. Just make the weave a bit longer than needed and then remove the errant jump rings from the beginning of the chain.
