SweetHeart TANGLE PATTERN

Loopy lines.......love them and use them often to create a base framework to build drawings on. They've starred in a few of my patterns, too!


About a week ago during some enforced downtime I started thinking about connecting loopy lines in a pattern and when I started experimenting on paper the happy result was the appearance of hearts - how could I resist?

So, first - the pattern:
Here is a quick video showing how to draw 4 panels to create the "flower":


And finally, some samples in use:

Have a great day!

  2. I like this tangle a lot Helen. I'm not a fan of hearts - am I allowed to say that on your blog ;) - but I can see ways to de-emphasise the heart part of this and the ability to shade or colour different parts is really exciting. Looking forward to playing!

    1. Hahaha, yes, you can say it.........quietly! Lots of options on this one. I like the idea of emphasizing the small centre strokes to create flowers, too! hx

  3. I'm always excited when I see you share something! This looks so fun to do and my favorite is the wonky lines base. That technique always says "Helen's" to me. Off to try it!

  5. I actually second Jem on her 'very quiet' comment, but had to give this tangle a try as soon as I opened the email without even reading it (!!!). Yes, I missed the 'flow' completely and initially drew it all wrong, each loop by itself. My curiosity rescued me though and after watching the little video and practicing the 'flow' (which for me was a bit tricky) I think I finally mastered the tangle and its technique and drew it in a wonky grid, my preferred grid. Helen, thanks so much for yet another interesting tangle and beautiful sample mono tiles.
