Aluminum kits can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/505139880/
Limited edition colorful kits can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1017419168/

Use aluminum and anodized aluminum rings to create the now classic Rondo a la Byzantine weave, my most popular original design. 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: https://www.etsy.com/listing/474701259 ** If you would like to purchase a hard copy of Helm, please message me!

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.

I learned many of the 100's of weaves I know through Rebeca's tutorials. This one was very simple to follow and helped me finish the project in a few hours. Full color instructions were downloaded with no problems. I appreciate she includes left AND right handed instructions.

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!
