I had to try both.
Here's the one with a loop-de-loop string and angular tangles. After the pencil string I drew a grid in ink over all. Then I used all tangles based on grid patterns. This is something I do in one of my advanced classes. The grid pattern tangles don't all use only straight lines! I couldn't use Bales for example. Anyone for a hot air balloon ride?
|Tangles: Demi, Gingham, Screen, Up and Across, Yincut, Zanella|
Here's the one with a zigzag string and lots of curly, curvy tangles. I was going to leave a thin, white zigzag between the two halves until I realized that none of the tangles would be touching!
|Tangles: Caviar, Flux, Lotus Pods, Miranda, Opus, Purslane (or Flux tangleation), Tipple, Wud|
