Wow. I am really thrilled with this one! Yes, there are step-outs!
(Oh, alright! Skip to the step-outs! But come back up to see/read all the rest, okay?)
I noticed this interlacing on the box of the game Isle of Skye. It's a classic Celtic interlacing pattern, which, if you follow a strand, you'll notice is composed of two strands, not one. (I enjoyed the game, by the way.)
|This is the pattern stripe from the game's box.|
Deconstructing this pattern encountered a lot of false starts.
Once I had figured out how to draw it, I drew it a few times on a tile. I wanted to be sure I knew what I was doing before I pretended to explain it to others.
|Tangles: Black Pearlz, Pearlz, Skye, Tipple|
|Tangles: Bunzo, Crescent Moon, Pearlz, Phuds, Skye|
Don't forget to shade it, although it looks quite alright without. Have fun!
|Tangles: Cruze, Elven, single Pearlz, Skye, Zonked|
|Tangles: Skye, Tipple, and wavy lines|
Well, my goodness! People are having lots of fun with this tangle, to the extent that some are posting alternate step-outs and video demos. Here are three videos offering basics and further explorations such as ending a row of Skye, and doing Skye in a circle.
The first is from Bunte Gallerie on YouTube:
The next is one is from Kathrin Bendel, also on YouTube. Kathrin is a CZT in Germany and made this (her first!) video as an additional instruction to some who were having challenges drawing Skye.
And one from Ellen Wolters, who has done video demos of a great many tangle patterns.
