Molly came across this tangle called weben (German for "weave") on this Flickr page from idiloewenherz:

I fell in love with it (maybe because of its straight lines . . . :-) and wanted to share it with you in case you haven't seen it.

It's a perfect tangle for shading. It's simple, yet asks you to pay attention. It offers a three-dimensional surprise. Its first two steps are just like w2, yet one simple change takes it in a fun and unexpected direction . . . sorta like a combination of mi2 and w2!

Maria and I have been playing around with it and taking it in different directions. Here are a couple tiles from our kitchen table:

We invite you to explore weben's many possibilities (and tangleations!).

Thanks for bringing it back to my awareness!

It has a wonderful sky-scraper potential to it. Lovely shading.
