Dodecagons, squares and triangles.


This is analogous to using octagons and square, the famous linoleum tile pattern, but dodecagons when lined up north/south/east/west leave a gap filled by triangles and squares, not just a simple square.


The same idea with the squares removed, which makes it a little hard to line the triangles up neatly. Without magnetized backs, these shapes can be very delicate to work with, and lining things up perfectly becomes more of a challenge.

I like these a lot. There's about ten patterns or so, but there are a lot of variations that can be done with color, so you will be seeing more.
