I did this in AA and it's SUPER tight and had to adjust the steps a bit. Are these sizes in AWG or SWG? I think I'm going to try it again another time but only do a single 3/16" ring in the middles instead of doubling them.

A single ring is fine as long as it holds structure well. Maille is a lot of modifying sometimes. Different metals and coatings fit differently. It's the reason most people pick a single supplier and stick with them. If not it's like knitting. You have to make test patches in each pattern and it takes forever.

hey I used this pattern with the ring sizes listed and I wasn't able to connect the fifth point. I checked and double checked but I had the right ring sizes. is it because for the larger rings I used steel instead of aluminum?

Sorry, I am not active on here much at all. The smaller rings need to be able to completely fit inside the larger rings with some room to spare. Check to make sure with your rings. It shouldn't matter between steel an aluminum at this point. Check perhaps you need 3/8" ID. I haven't done that in a while and that might very well be a mistake that I nor noone else has caught. >.>
