This grid underwent a very insect-like metamorphosis from start to finish. I did not at all plan on all those long downs intersecting the big stack. I was planning on keeping the cocoon around the stack in the middle, but, one by one, I kept having to pop open the center until all the long downs appeared, and then two more 15s appeared… before I knew it, it had turned from a cocoon into a butterfly, with its legs and wings all over the place connecting to the thorax in the middle.


Thanks so much to all who’ve left a tip! It’s much appreciated, believe me.


Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.


As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!
