Knightstar is een mooie, logische tangle maar ik heb er wat moeite mee om dit patroon netjes aansluitend te tekenen.  Daarom heb ik gekozen voor fragmenten, waar naast andere motieven de gekleurde  Knigthstar er toch als “ster” uitkomt, nietwaar?

Knightstar is a nice, logic tangle but I had some difficulties to draw this pattern very regulary. That is why I have chosen for fragments, together with other tangles. I find that in this drawing the colored Knightstar is the real star, isn’t it?

    Wow, gorgeos tile! I also find it difficult to draw Knightstar. Tangling with other tangles mosaic-like – what a great idea! And I love the blue colour.

      Thank you Bine for this nice compliment. Thanks to the Diva’s site, we can learn every week a little bit, by seeing what others do. I’m glad you like my idea, but I also like your tiles and ideas very much.

    It was difficult to keep track of where I was when I tried to do an entire tile of Knightstar. However, I had the time to keep at it and I saw another way to do it on line. Now it is one of my favorite tangles. I really like the way you used it in your tile. The color works very well also. Very nice.

      Thank you Suzanne, me too, I’ve found another way to draw the Knightstar, more easier and then it is a very nice pattern.

    Very striking. Nice mix of patterns and spot of color. I did have some issues with doing this pattern.

    I mean churchwindow of course! My iPhone does some funny things sometimes!?

    You did a beautiful mosaique out of this! It could work as a Churchill-window! I am also in trouble with this pattern, but I like it, so I’ll keep on practicing!

    The colour gives the knightstar a real lift. I love how you have done this collage of tangle surprises.

    Ik ken Knightstar niet..moet nog veel leren. Ik hou wel van deze gekleurde variatie. Ook vind ik de compositie met de andere Tangles geslaagd. Schaduw is mooi aangebracht. ?

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Ik heb gewone kleurpotloden gebruikt om de Knightstar in te kleuren (eerlijk gezegd om kleine “foutjes” te verdoezelen, het is geen gemakkelijke tangle, vind ik)
      De lijnen die de compositie vormen zijn gewoon willekeurig getekend en het invullen van enkele van mijn favoriete tangles was dan een fluitje van een cent…
      Ik moet wel toegeven dat het me moeite heeft gekost om die Knightstar een beetje fatsoenlijk te tekenen. Bedankt voor je positieve commentaar Maddy!

    WAUW!!!! Dit is prachtig, Ria!!!!

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Annemarie voor je reactie, ik heb gezweet aan deze tile want ik vind Knightstar echt wel een moeilijke tangle om mooi regelmatig te tekenen, maar hier en daar een stukje dat viel wel mee.(na eerst een paar mislukte pogingen, dat geef ik graag toe)

    Ria, I really love your tile. You did a great job with Knightstar. I like how you used it as one of the fragments. The blue color makes it really stand out. You always do such lovely work.
