On my first tile I used the basic Whyz tangle as the string and filled the spaces with variations of Whyz, just to get a feel for it.
Then I branched out a bit.
|Tangles: Black Pearlz, Jonqal, Khirkee, Knightsbridge, Whyz|
I quite like this tangle (didn't think I would, actually) and there are many possible variations:
- Once I goofed and started lining up the 'Y's rather than alternating them, but I thought, "No mistakes" and wondered what I could do with that. It's one of my favorite variations!
- You can put the 'Y's side-by-side from square to square, as Laura did in her example, rather than alternating. I did too, in the lower left of the second tile. Then you can make interesting chevron, feather things.
- Various areas can be filled black, or striped, or left white. (Or stippled. Didn't try that. Good idea.)
- The small triangles can be filled, and look a bit like pinwheels (see first tile, left, and second tile top right).
PS: just FYI: I messed up a small section of Khirkee and turned it into tiny Knightsbridge. Then, for artistic unity, I did tiny Knightsbridge elsewhere on the tile.
