I’ve had this tangle hanging around for a while, and started sharing it with people at CZT20. Based on the responses from folks there, I thought I’d get the step out and origin story posted and shared.
This tangle came about a couple of years ago when we were on our family vacation in Maine. Whenever we go, we try to visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Booth Bay. They are beautiful and have a wonderful children’s section that my daughter loves. As she was playing near the pond, I sat on the rocks watching the minnows and tadpoles and was inspired for MeBoGa (from Maine Botanical Gardens).
As you can see from the step outs, it starts with just a series of backwards and forwards S curves, and has many possibilities for variations.
Here are some other examples with a monotangle of variations and used with Paradox, Purk, and Fife in a zendala. (That is one of the pre-strung zendala tiles – they make it so easy!)
Let me know if you try it out – I’d love to see how you use it!
