But I don't use it much these days. When Adele suggested it, to work with the particularly loopy string she chose this week I realised the challenge was truly on. I had to get to know this tangle all over again, and find what it could really do. Armed with all the various tips and trick I've picked up over the months I filled an entire page of my sketchbook with Knightsbridge and its variants. At times it's hard to tell what is a tangleation, and what is a new tangle - but don't let that stop us!
I particularly wanted to see if I could round the tangle a bit, if I could knock back it's extremes, both to ease up on that constant heavy black filling, but also to allow other tangles to sit on top more easily. I also wanted to increase its shading potential. I came up with a handful of Knightsbridges that I liked and thought I'd share them here - it's a good place to keep them safe for when I need them next, and others might also like to use them.
