"It's a String Thing" #236

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

It is also Easter week - how did that creep up so quickly this year?

IAST #236 is here to give you a bit of fun and an excuse to make time for tangling in this otherwise busy time - our own tangled Easter Egg Hunt ­čąÜ.

We begin with this string ~

The tangles we will use include ~

This tangle unfolds beautifully one step at a time and will bring a smile to your face. 
I tweaked the step out just a little bit to make it easier to draw - Click here for my Tips for Tangling.

Detail lines are so soothing to draw. This tangle begins with them and then wave-like lines are added over top.  I was reminded of eggs when I first saw this tangle, and thought Easter week would be a good time to give it a try.

This organic pattern when finished is a bit egg shaped and is a perfect addition.

As with all our IAST adventures, pencil in the string keeping in mind that it is a suggestion, let the tangles lead the way, and use as many or as few as you wish.
