Hotel strings

Once you start tangling you notice that patterns are just darn EVERYWHERE! But so, too, are string ideas. I've been noticing that some hotel chain logos have interesting string possibilities.

There's Holiday Inn and it's 'H'.
It gives quite an angular, regular string rather than anything mysterious, but add tangles and you'll hardly recognize it.
Tangles: Festune, Jetties, Keenees, Roxi, Strircles, Tipple
You can also add that shadow under the crossbar.
Tangles: Bunzo, Knightsbridge, Romanancy, and stripes.
Here's the 'R' in the Radisson Hotels' name:
In the first tile, the R is right-side up. In the second, you'll have to tilt your head to the left to see the R.
Tangles: Bilt, Fohbraid, Marasu, Phuds, Snaylz Traylz
Tangles: Coaster, C-scape, Fife, Flux, Starburst, Tipple
The Delta logo is a stylized 'D'. It reaches far to the left so I leave the long extension off to make it more square.
Tilt your head to the right and you can probably see the 'D' string on this tile.
Tangles: Crescent Moon, Knase, Pearlz, Tipple, Yuma
In the last tile, you'll need to tilt your head left to see the D, although it's quite well disguised!
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Copada, Fracas, Starburst, Tipple, Trio
What logos can you find that offer an interesting string?


  1. These are just Fabulous - wonderful idea for a string!

  2. It's amazing how once you get in the right frame of mind, you will see patterns - and strings - everywhere you look. Beautiful Tiles. I'm thinking the golden arches would be a nice string.
