- to work from the outsides in, trying to leave at least one blank space between tangles until closer to the end;
- to leave the edges of tangles incomplete until the end;
- to study the tangles on either side of an empty spot to see how they can connect;
- to look at where tangles end appropriately against the string and see how to bridge to the next one;
- to start with rounded or tangles meant to overlap first (like pokeroot, flux, or mooka) and then work "under" or "behind" them;
- specific ideas: grid tangles (cadent, w2, huggins, bales, etc) flow nicely together, as do some triangle ones (munchin, tripoli, kathy's dilemma, swarm, cadent variation, etc.); hollibaugh makes a great bridge; crescent moon and hollibaugh can also be tangled with additional patterns to flow into the next section
Here I started with the ribbon (not an offiicial name), which led into hollibaugh, then crescent moon, with a few bales in between. From the other side of ribbon, I did cadent. And cadent morphed into munchin for just a bit in the upper right corner. Finally, fescu came off the ribbon in the lower left. It's definitely a start.
