How to draw ZIN

Zentangle pattern: Zin. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. All rights reserved.This tangle pattern is one I created over the weekend while sipping a beautiful Zinfandel. Thus was born, Zin. (Although I did toy with naming it Zen for a bit.) You could change up the pattern by putting a different shape where the triangle is. No doubt there are more variants …

For a change of pace, the instructions for drawing the pattern are right here on this page. Here are the step-by-step instructions for drawing my Zentangle® pattern, Zin. Have fun with it!

My red Sakura Micron is an 05 and on copier paper it tends to bleed a little. I can see I do need to get the red 01. And you really need to be drawing your Zentangles on the official tiles, it’s the best paper. See the STORE tab on the main menu bar for links.

  • Karen Ball

    Is this your first “published” tangle? Didn’t see anymore in your Tags (hey, I’m learning!). I really like it. Can we expect to see a Cab, a Gewertz?

  • Debby

    Very nice. I will definitely use this one. Thanks for sharing.

  • Linda Farmer

    Thanks Ladies, I’m honored by your appreciation. Namaste.

    @Carole – from you, this is truly an honor.

    @Karen – Yes, I confess this is my debut pattern. It was a bold leap. As for Cab or Gewertz, tonight it’s a Chard so I’ll be on alert for that tangle pattern to emerge, just not tonight. [Full Disclosure: Karen is our “oldest” friend we’ve known for 35+ years from our “youth” in Toronto. She’s the reason we live here, we moved out of hurricane central (South Florida) to be close to our dear friend in North Florida – where it’s still mild in winter!]

    @Debby – you are most welcome. [I love designing forms almost as much as I love learning how to draw tangle patterns and Zentangles.]

    @y’all – I see that well over 100 of you lovely subscribers have at least peeked at it as I write this reply. Thanks to everyone for checking out Zin!

  • I’m late to the party, but I’m still going to have fun with Zin. It’s a lovely pattern, flexible enough to be used in many ways. I’ve posted about it in my blog, in case anyone else I know has missed it.

    Thanks too, because I saw the links to Donna Hornsby’s site, which I had missed until now.
