How to draw TWISTEE

Zentangle pattern: Twistee. 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.Twistee is another of Livia Chua’s fun tangle patterns. For an introduction to Livia (aka skinnystraycat on flickr), check out her Warped Eggs tangle pattern.

Livia advises, “You don’t have to make the rope of a uniform thickness. In fact, it’s better to vary the thickness, so that it looks like it’s really twisting.” Oops, maybe next time for me!

Look for this arrow in the lower right corner of your screen on flickr to download the steps.

Livia illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Twistee here.

Lately she’s been creating some adorable embroidered felt charms and ACEO‘s that are completely in character with her drawings, check out “Beth” here. And “Jellyfish”, here. A couple of my favs, and BTW – Livia says she’s not ready to sell her ACEOs yet, just in case you’re wondering.

  • Twistee is one of my favourite tangles. There are so many ways to use it!

    I used it here for a colour accent:

  • Hi Linda,
    I LOVE your site! Thank you so much for doing this! I just purchased Sandy’s books and am having the greatest time ‘Mollydoodling’. I have a blog entry set to launch at noon tomorrow that contains several links to specific patterns just to illustrate this point:
    (Exerpt from blog)
    “I’m anxiously awaiting the Diva’s next challenge and have made up one of my own for this week: Make tangles using patterns that start with the same letters in my name. For those of you who aren’t into tangling, there are a wealth of little how-to step guides out there for various patterns and they all have cute names: M-Meer, O-Opus, L-Loops, L-Linked, E-Echo, Y-Yincut.So this exercise will teach me how to find a space for the pattern instead of a pattern for the space like I usually do. It’s about expanding the mind people!

    Meer, Opus, Loops, Linked and Echo are the links to your site. If this is stepping on any legal toes, please let me know and I’ll stop the launch immediately. I’m not sure what the rules are and don’t want to create an ‘oops’.
    Thanks so much for your time and keep up the great work!

      Hi Melinda, so glad you love the site and linking to my content is just fine – thanks for asking!

      I posted this challenge on TanglePatterns in January, have a look here: http://tanglepatterns.com/2011/01/zentangle-your-name.html – you can link to that too if you like. As I mention in my challenge, you can choose any words for this type of inspiration, but starting with your name is a good one. Cheers and happy tangling, Linda
