I got a chance to play with one of the 8s tangles created by Jane Eileen, thanks to the diva’s challenge this week. They are all drawn onto a unique 8-dot grid; this particular one (used in both tiles below) is 8s parte dos.
Like mi2, huggins, and w2, the 8s result in a woven look. They’re challenging to work out, but once you know where the curves go and how they relate, there are a lot of opportunities for exploration. I’ll definitely use this one again!

If you’re interested in learning 8s parte dos, wander over to this post by Jane Eileen. You’ll also find 8s, 8s parte tres, 8s parte quattro, and a host of great tangellations of them all on her blog.
