How to draw HATCHPATCH

Zentangle pattern: Hatchpatch. 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.This fun tangle pattern named Hatchpatch comes from the beautiful and totally fascinating island of Tasmania, Australia.

Hatchpatch was created by Melissa Hughes, a student in one of Kit Murdoch’s Zentangle® classes. Kit, known as DreamScribe on flickr, is a graphic designer (now retired) and calligrapher among her many talents and she’s planning to become a CZT® this year. Hatchpatch is a variation of the official tangle Knightsbridge broken out of its overall grid.

Melissa demonstrates how to draw Hatchpatch using a Livescribe Smartpen in a pencast video here. Be sure to enlarge the image to full screen (look for the orange button).

Hatchpatch is illustrated in a Zentangle® tile here, by Kit in her flickr photostream. If you’d like some tips on shading your tangles, check out this page where Kit has also added to the 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

  • Yay, Mel! Love your pencasts (check out her others while you’re there). I’ve used Hatchpatch once again in my Eyes Wide Shut tile this week, in honour of its publication. (About to go up on my blog) 🙂

    This is a lovely article, Linda! Tanglepatterns.com has a lot of devoted fans, here in Tasmania. We refer to your site often during our weekly “Tuesday Tanglers” get together (out come the smartphones – and we access the mobile version of this site which, if you haven’t played with it yet, is a real pleasure to use!).

    For more Tasmanian awesomeness (because, of course, we are!) – visit our blogs: Melissa, Kit, Shelly, and Jane.

    While I’m commenting – if there are other Tasmanian tanglers out there (with or without an online presence) that we don’t know about – drop by my blog, where you’ll find my email address – and introduce yourself. We’d love to meet you!

    a new favorite! :]
