|Tangles: Auraknot (with Paradox tangleation),|
After I posted this tile I received many comments and email requests asking how I did it so I decided a little tutorial was in order.
Fabulous is used here strictly as a descriptive term, not a new tangle name. I think of this variation as a hybrid of Auraknot and Paradox and that is why I have listed it as such. I have included a picture below of the instructions and you can download the tutorial as a PDF here.
There are a few things to remember when drawing this tangle:
1. Remember to turn your tile and only go in one direction the entire time. The directions above are drawn going clockwise.
2. This will work with an infinite number of points, just like doing a regular Auraknot. I have only used a 5 pointed star because it is easy for demonstration purposes.
3. When you reach the middle, it may seem a little strange. Just pretend like you are starting over as if it was a brand new section of Paradox.
4. Don't worry if you make a "mistake". This hybrid tangle is very forgiving and difficult to find the error. Just keep going!
I hope this tutorial has provided you with some new inspiration and that you enjoy the infinite possibilities that Auraknot has to offer!
