I've been toying with a pattern, myself, and would like to introduce it today.
This pattern, FRAMZ, as I call it, didn't really have an inspiration per se. It is just something that I like to draw. After showing it to a few people, I have been told that it reminds them of frames you can buy, where there are a number of them joined together. I've seen a few sold by Umbra. Maybe that is where my inspiration came from and I didn't realize?
Anyway, I hesitated for awhile to put the pattern out there. It has a bit of difficulty "playing" well with others....it is hard to find the right tangles to put with it on a string to keep the flow going. As a stand alone, it does create its own string, too, which I find quite fun. So, once I was able to create a few tiles with Framz and other tangles co-existing, I decided it was time to share in the fun.
Here you have it, Framz!
I think that the nice part about this pattern is that there is no set order for the shapes. Once you get started you're off to the races. So, there are really only two steps.
|Top tile patterns: Hollibaugh, Cubine and Framz|
Bottom tile patterns: Printemps, Nzeppel, Framz (with a few Printemps inside)
|Top Tile Patterns: Nzeppel, Cubine, Jetties, Knightsbridge, Printemps, Hibred variation|
Middle Tile Patterns: Printemps, Framz
Bottom Tile Patterns: Printemps, Framz, Widgets
The shading for this pattern is also fun. I've shaded in many different ways, as you can see.
Let me know what you think of it. I'd love to see what you do with it, too!
