It’s a String Thing #81¬†uses two patterns by Lynn Mead, Fassett and Phroz, which is a variation of Fassett.

I was happy to see that we had another duotangle on our hands. Using just one or two tangles in a tile lets you play around with the tangles more and explore more variations. That said, I had some difficulty with this week’s tile. I think I have some difficulties with angular patterns, like these and Paradox.

Although Adele gave us the option of using any tangles we liked, I felt it wouldn’t be It’s a String Thing if I didn’t use the suggested string. Here’s my first attempt.

Actually, now that I look at it, it doesn’t look that bad. When I was drawing it though, I just couldn’t figure out how to fill in the spaces in the string, so I left it half-complete. The white space looks quite decent now though!

But I wasn’t happy with that tile, so I drew another one, and this is the one that I’ll be submitting to the challenge.

I used the suggested string, although it’s a bit hard to see it here. Many of the variations I used here are the same as the variations in the first tile. They’re just put together differently.
