My tangle pattern: K-Ning


At a friend’s house, I came across a chair upholstered with caning, and decided to turn the pattern into a tangle.
I keep thinking I’ve got it–I know how to ‘look’ at patterns and see. And then I could slap myself silly when I discover how far I have yet to go.
I slaved over this pattern, trying to come up with simple steps. Over and over, I tried different starts, like I was playing chess. Finally, I decided it was too complex. I could see and draw the pattern myself, but it was too difficult to break down.
Then I was looking through the zentangle group and admiring some well-done ‘Cadent’. BLaa-A—MMMM!!!
This pattern is practically a variation of Cadent! The last zentangle newsletter (http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs023/1101168872594/archive/1103593650371.html) even featured variations of Cadent, yet it took me DAYS! to see the similiarity.
Well, I think the steps are easy now, and there is tons of room for variation. Especially if you’ve done Cadent.
Let me know what you think.

  1. This one is so beautiful, I love it I put it in my zentangle note book right away. The one I call my field Journal. Oh! with your name on it. thanks so much

  2. Your pattern is one thing, your use of it another entirely… your example is just wonderful, I especially like how you used Interweave with it, so deliciously complementary. It is the weekend and here I am at 5:30 in the morning (ugghh!) which is insane but at least I can have some time to try this out.
