    Howdy! I’m brandy new to tangling and am enjoying it already. One question I have has to do with how to choose patterns after you draw a string. Some patterns seem to go better next to each other and others fit better inside certain shapes. Any advice for selecting tangle patterns to use on one tile for a nice balance of weight, texture, contrast, etc? Any tips about how to choose a pattern based on the shape of the space you’re filling? For example, I had a hard time getting a grid pattern inside a teardrop-shaped space and I can’t tell if it’s because a more organic pattern would have been better or if it’s a matter of practice. Thanks!
