Pattern Mixer Challenge #17



Dear Tanglers!

Welcome to this month’s Pattern Mixer!

Is it spring where you are? It looks like warmer times are slowly arriving here in Hamburg. I can even see a bit of blue sky! Yay!! 🙂 But we’re not here to chat about the weather, are we? Let’s get to work!

Maybe you read my last post on wednesday and maybe you’ve even begun to practice flooping? If so, you’re all set for the Pattern Mixer, because:

This month’s patterns are:



First time for the challenge? You can find the rules here.

Aurabridge is a wonderful tangleation of Hollibaugh by Belgian CZT Rita Nikolajeva. Just pick the version you like best and tangle away! Hope you have as much fun as I did. 🙂

One thing I wanted to mention: I love looking at everyone’s results and I sometimes leave comments. I often see beautiful tiles on Flickr that I would definitely want to comment on. Alas, I don’t have a Flickr account (and I’m not planning on getting one), so commenting is not possible. So if you’ve never received a comment from me, it might be because you are using Flickr to upload your tile. In this case, be assured that I love ALL your pattern mixes! It never ceases to amaze me what you people come up with! 😀

Anyhow, here’s my entry for today:


ATTENTION, please! While all tiles submitted in the last months were stunningly beautiful, there seems to have been some confusion about pattern mixing. Just drawing two patterns next to each other on a tile is called a Duo Tangle (and it can definitely be worth your while), but when we mix patterns, we go one step further. Pattern mixing means to merge two tangles, to intertwine them or even create a new tangle from the combination. I’ve drawn up a few examples for you here. Mixing patterns is not easy and you might even want to collect a few ideas or do a few sketches first. But it’s a real booster to yor creativity and it’s – well, a challenge!
