Hi-C's is lovely, but it looked a little empty when I finished the tile, so I went a bit crazy and filled in areas with other bits and pieces. I simply divided the tile into four squares. Two opposite corners feature this tangle in single form. In another I again divided the square into four and did what Anita shows in her instructions. In the fourth square I used Bales as it seemed to go with the shapes in Hi-C's. This tangle certainly lends itself to variations and embellishment!
|Tangles: Bales, Black Pearlz, Plaited, simple stripes, and Rounding.|
I found Plaited more challenging. On my first try I really botched it. Oops.
Then I realized that I hadn't exactly followed the directions! I looked at the instructions again and noticed that I need to draw the alternating curved lines before I do the straight lines that join them. Essentially steps one and two are both shown in step one. I had better luck on the second go 'round. It still needs some practise but I think I'm getting the idea. That's good because it's a lovely pattern!
