I like W2 because it reminds me of a Mothers Day present I made years and years ago. The one where you cut out two shapes, cut strips into them, and then weave them together to form a heart.
Mum still has the heart I made to this day.
At first I struggled with the set up of W2; I couldn’t wrap my head around the layout of the diamonds. But once I realised it was just a straight grid of squares on the diagonal I was sorted. I can turn my paper 45 degrees and draw the grid, then turn it back straight to add in the lines and finish it off.
You can find the Tangle Patterns tutorial here.
Step 1. Draw a grid of diamonds.
Step 2. Add in all lines in one direction, alternating inside and outside the little squares.
Step 3. Add in all lines in the other direction, again alternating inside and outside the squares.
Step 4 (optional). Decide where the ‘light’ is and add in some shading accordingly.
Fun fact: unless I actively think about it, my ‘light’ is always to the top left so I shade the bottom right of my Tangles. I don’t know why, it just feels right.
