Continuous-loop cable design, Part 2

Here's how to generate continuous-loop cable designs.

  1. Cables can cross where 4 entrelac squares meet at their corners.
  2. Any regular polygon can be decomposed into (possibly distorted) squares.
  3. Where polygons so decomposed share an edge, 4 squares meet at their corners.
  4. Fill in the cables for a tasty continuous-cable treat.
