Tangle Pattern: Diatom

Here’s my latest tangle pattern step-by-step for Diatom. This pattern is based on a scanning electron microscope image of a diatom. Diatoms are small algae-like organisms that populate bodies of water. I’ve been fascinated by them since learning they can be important in forensics, when I went to the Royal Free pathology department museum around 30 years ago.
