Little squares and big squares

Today I'm playing with size a bit. I have two patterns that seem a lot different but only differ by the size of the squares used. As with my recent trend of elaborating a triangular grid by inserting polygon sequences between the triangles, here we have a triangle-square-triangle being inserted. By changing the size of the square inserted the squares can be made to meet in the middle of the hole produced by the insertion.

The change in the amount of white space and the addition of the pointy features makes the pattern feel a lot different even though they are closely related.

To highlight the path of the insertions and the role of the original triangles, I have included close-ups showing the path of the new loops.
