Puzzle Ring tweaking

It turns out that when cadding a puzzle ring, some issues turn up. Specifically, when a band goes over one band then immediately under another, it frequently doesn't have enough space to squeeze through between them.

I've come up with some techniques for dealing with this, and drew the following diagrams, which I think are kind of pretty, and I'm proud of my diagramming technique involved :-)
