Viperscale is a weave invented by Lady Lockeout while she was trying to learn how to weave GSG. It's a good jewelry weave for large aspect ratios; though it can be turned into a sheet weave, doing so requires unusually large rings (with an aspect ratio on the order of 8). An alternative method of sheeting it is to take two chains of Viperscale and to connect them with Euro 4-1 stitches, much as EPH does. Anyway, on with the instructions. The basic chain can be made with aspect ratios of about 5.5 or 6.

Step 1: Put two rings through a single ring.
Step 1

Step 2: Add a new ring. It should go around the middle ring and through the left ring, then through the middle and right rings.
Step 2

Step 3: Add a new ring. This time, it goes around the middle ring and through the right ring, then through the middle and left rings. This new ring should go under the previous ring.
Step 3

Step 4: Probably the easiest step in the weave; just add a new silver ring through the two copper rings.
Step 4

Step 5: Now we need to add a brass ring. Not only does it go through the silver ring; it also goes up through the two copper rings.
Step 5

Step 6: And again, add a brass ring.
Step 6

Step 7: Time to add more copper rings. They only go through the latest silver and brass rings. This one goes around on the left and through on the right.
Step 7

Step 8: Another copper ring. This goes around on the right and through on the left.
Step 8

That's it! Go back to step 4 to continue making the weave. Finished Viperscale chain:
