How to draw CHAINLETTE

Tangle pattern: Chainlette. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Chainlette is a fun tangle pattern created by Kristy Thomas, also known as Rose Twofeather on flickr.

Kristy was one of the very first people to leave a comment on TanglePatterns when I started the site last May and her comment was full of support for me. At the time she was going through a very brave but very tough time during her husband Marvin’s last months of struggle with mesothelioma. Sadly, Marvin passed away last summer.

During this time as she chronicled the months through her tangles on flickr, Kristy created some wonderful Zentangle-inspired drawings of hands including her own, Marvin’s and those of her two grandchildren. She intends to do her grandchildren’s hands again each year to record their growth. Kristy started a trend of folks recording their family “imprints” in this unique and beautiful way.

Kristy illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Chainlette here. And she offers quite a few variations for drawing Chainlette here.

It’s been a while since Kristy has felt connected to her muse, so be sure to send her some love in your thoughts and your comments.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H

  • Hello Kristy, I’m brand new to Zentangles. Just tried your Chainlette; thanks for sharing. We have a link in that I also lost my hubby of 43 yrs to melanoma September last year. I’m hoping that I can create some wonderful tangle tiles eventually, I’m not an ‘artist’ at all but I read that you don’t need to be. I’ll keep practicing! Take care.
