"It's a String Thing" #201

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

...and the start of our third 'century' together - what a treat!

You won't want to miss the tiles for our 200th celebration.  They will be posted this coming Thursday.

In the meantime, we will be 'channeling' good thoughts as IAST #201 begins with this string ~
IAST #201 by Adele Bruno, CZT
Feel free to turn the string in any direction that appeals to you.

We will use these three channel line grid tangles ~

This newly published tangle is simple and sweet, yet open to any number of ways to enhance it.

You will notice in Carole's step out, that the lines do not necessarily line up.  In fact, the tangle gains a more interesting look when they do not.  The dark spaces of this pattern will add some weight to our tiles.

It has been a long time since we used this elegant tangle.  Below are a few notes of mine (from years ago!) that you may find helpful ~
