There were a few S patterns that I played around with, but one just captured my heart. It will be a favorite, and used often, I know it: Shnek
Once again, this one came along when I was clicking around randomly, probably on pinterest, not really searching for S patterns...but there it was.
I played with it a bit and found out that you can change the look of it, depending on where you connect the next round
if you connect at the round, it looks like a little ball.
This pattern is so wonderful for edges, and I can just picture it in a "garden" tile, as caterpillars. Making it actually is very similar to flux, because you are making loops, and coming back to connect.
Here is a piece I made yesterday. Hollibaugh was on my mind, so I drew some, and I let it set a bit, until inspiration struck:
|It looks like a pie|
Shnek on the round. Pretty cool looking.
Another pattern that struck my fancy for this challenge was Sindoo by Sharon Robinson
This was a tough one to do right, and I haven't yet made it as lovely as demonstrated on tanglepatterns.com, but it's a terrific pattern for a grid with delicacy and elegance.
And this is the tile I created.
It is string #80 which I found at Adele Bruno's site, the current string thing challenge
|it's like a centipede|
And one element of sindoo in the corner. A little bit of shading. And voila!My entry in the challenge
