It occurred to me that I could do the same thing twice, on a round tile, and that might give me an irregular mandala form.
Here's my first one. I even used white on black and was happy with it!
|Tangles: Black Pearlz, Knase, Paradox, Pearlz, Tipple, Tripoli|
In the middle there were a LOT of small spaces to fill! I combined a few sections. In my second one I combined even more sections, ignoring some of the string lines (there are no Rules, remember?) It also struck me that an irregular N'zeppel was an ideal tangle to accomodate some of those tiny sections. Interesting how the dark 'star ends' of Tripoli make the points look rounded.

I also tried sending the loop out rather than in. I think it's better the other way. I used some gray ink and some white ink, too.

Then I thought, hmmm... color! But I'll show you some of those later.
