How to draw SHATTUCK

Shattuck can be drawn as a ribbon or border-style tangle or as in my example below it can also fill a section of your Zentangle® tile.

Sandy Bartholomew gives some ideas for variations and illustrates how to draw Shattuck here.

    The other day on the “Hello Zentangle Zealots!” page, Kim Gabriel made a request for more help in drawing Shattuck:

    “What I am wondering is if it is possible for you to either show or find some other example showing how to draw Shattuck. Yes, I have looked at Beez in the Belfrey and bought her book and bought both of MacNeil’s books. I have pages (and I mean PAGES) of attempts. For whatever reason, this one pattern absolutely eludes me. And of course, it is one pattern I long with all my heart to have under my belt. So far the only on line example I can find is Sandy’s and I think I need a few more steps. Yup, totally lame but after weeks of working on this, I am flying the white flag of surrender. I would just call it quits altogether if it wasn’t such an amazing pattern. Who knows why my brain will not compute? Any help would be ever so gratefully received. You would be driven to pity if you saw my attempts.”

    In response to Kim’s request I invited CZT Vicki Murray to help us out and she’s graciously agreed. Thanks Vicki!

    Check out the SHATTUCK page for Vicki’s guidance on how to draw this pattern.

    That was fast! Thanks so much, Vicki!

    Vicki responded by posting detailed instructions with tips to keep in mind and some great ideas for variations on Shattuck on her blog, here.

    Huge hugs being beamed out to both Linda and Vicki. I think the key here may be to draw it horizontally instead of vertically. Small stuff, yeah, but that might be just what my poor brain needed! Thanks for the quick response guys, I am grabbing a piece of paper and my trusty G Tec C4 and heading outside…

    I spent the evening yesterday drawing Shattuck. At some point it clicked although I have to say if I let my mind wander at all I make the next set of lines “wrong”. It seems I have some form of tangle dyslexia with this pattern and I have to keep a very close watch on what I am doing. I cannot get into “zen” mode with it or it goes kerflui. I did get it, though, and can now do it and I am very grateful for the help.

    I’m with you Kim – absolutely can’t get the hang of this tangle. A couple of times I thought I had it sorted; but no. Just like you too, I can’t work out WHY I can’t get it….and now Vicki’s page (which seems to havae helped you isn’t available either!

  • Jillian Shattuck

    I love this tangle personally! And that has nothing to do with how it’s named after my families name! 😛 I would like to know the history of this pattern and how it came to be called “Shattuck”, if anyone has any info please reply!
