 I've been in the process for ages of curating, and redrawing my pattern reference folder - it's something I do on and off  when I'm in the mood (more off than on - I'm only up to the D's). I initially drew out patterns that I liked quickly and in basic format, now I'm going back and being a bit more adventurous with them, randomising, adding shading, etc, etc. It's a great way to revisit ones I have forgotten, put my brain in neutral, and get the odd idea, too.

When drawing out Dawn's lovely pattern Blossom - the zig zag grid got me thinking, the end result was this pattern:
I had some fun experimenting with the fill options:

If filling with black as above, you could ditch the initial horizontal lines and just do rows of zig zags.



  1. Ooohh!! Nice pattern, I'll add it to my list of to do's.

  2. I just drew this pattern for the first time - I love it!! The options for variations are wonderful. I particularly like the shine in one of your fill options. So simple yet so effective! Thanks for this one, Helen. 😃
