To celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 89th birthday and It’s a String Thing’s 89th challenge, Adele challenged us to use four tangles with a royal theme.

Jeewels, Jemz, Knightsbridge, Queen's Crown

Jeewels, Jemz, Knightsbridge, Queen’s Crown

I like it when I meet a tangle that looks complicated, yet it turns out easy when I’m drawing it. Jemz is such a tangle. It looked like it had too many lines and steps, and I worried about getting my diamonds the right size, but in the end it turned out just fine. I think the trick is to think of the resulting shape as an octagon, like Margaret Bremner suggests. Jeewels reminds me a lot of Unyun. The part with the semicircles resembles owls’ eyes to me!
