"It's a String Thing" #185

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

In Ragged Ray's post today, (Link) she introduces her newest tangle, Flec.

It inspired me to revamp my plans for this week's challenge and concentrate on patterns that flow in a single line.  On TanglePatterns, Linda Farmer classifies them as "ribbon tangles".

Ribbon tangles can flow along string lines, weave under and over themselves and other tangles, stack, change angles and many possibilities.

Let's begin with this string ~

Won't she be excited to see her new creation in use?

This is one of the newer tangles on TanglePatterns.

In search of another ribbon tangle, this gem popped up as I scrolled down the TanglePatterns site.

Two of our three tangles this week are from IAST contributors and dear friends - that's a treat!
