Looking for a particular tangle pattern, there are a few websites dedicated to listing them, with links to step outs, and some other useful reading options on all things tangling!
- TanglePatterns – Linda Farmer a CZT who hosts a wide collection of tangles with links to their “step-outs” (instructions) created by tanglers from all over this world. Tangles updated all the time.
- Musterquelle (PatternSource.eu) — another tangle pattern collection, with a section in Reticula and Fragments. Us the language selector to translate from German. Tangles updated all the time.
- Blog Zentangle – The individual blog posts are fun reading, definitely worth hunting through some older ones.
