This past week, I was reminded several times of the relaxing and rejuvenating nature of tangling simple and elegant patterns - especially ones that enfold magically into something unexpectedly beautiful.
Let's take a deep breath and revisit one such tangle together: Fassett by Lynn Mead, CZT.
We begin with this basic string ~
|IAST #213 String by Adele Bruno, CZT|
Feel free to divide the string sections into as many smaller triangles as you want before adding Fassett.
The step out for Fassett can be found here on Lynn's blog, A Tangler's Mind.
In her post, Lynn displays a tile that she contributed to IAST #81 that featured Fassett and her lovely Phorz.
Linda Farmer writes about Fassett here on TanglePatterns. The post features Lynn's step outs as well as her beautiful examples.
My Tips for Tangling Fassett can be found here.
Simply pencil in the string and enjoy your time tangling.
