News flash! Looped border creates its own string!

I tried putting a loop in my border. It's been done before. But this time I did it on all four sides and found that an interesting string was created. This is the simple line to do for all four border lines, and the type of string you get to tangle.
These are three tiles I did using this looped border string.
Tangles: Crescent Moon, Earth Rising, Printemps, Tipple (2 varieties)
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Fleurette, Tipple (2 varieties), Tripoli, Zedbra

Of course, if you want, you can add more outside the string.
Tangles: Beadlines, Fleurette, Flux, Paradox, Unyun,
stripes with highlights, and a triquetra


  1. Excellent idea! Loops it is - on my next tile, this is definitely happening!

  2. This looks thoroughly interesting - the permutations are endless too. I particularly like the way Beadlines joins the two Paradox sections.

  3. Very cool! I love it :) Will definitely be using this one - thanks for the great idea!

  4. I always like to add loops to my strings. I think i am attracted more to curvy lines than straight lines. These are really fun, and I love the 4 corners too.

  5. Thank you for the lovely idea. Think I will do four (the four seasons) and maybe some coasters oh the possibilities! Peggie Schurch Aust.

  6. I love this idea! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Lovely. I saw this idea just after I'd started doing ZIA and used it a lot. But recently I've been working larger formats without borders. As I had already decided to work Zentangle format this week, the challenge is absolutely spot on!

  8. Fun string dancing, love all the loops!
