How to draw PEA-NUCKLE

Zentangle pattern: Pea-nuckleIt’s been a little while since we had a new official tangle so it’s fun to see Pea-nuckle from CZT® Molly Hollibaugh. As you may know Molly is Maria Thomas’s daughter and naturally with Zentangle® in her genes I consider Molly’s tangles “official” too.

In introducing Pea-nuckle, Zentangle co-founder Rick Roberts writes, “As time goes by, it is an increasing challenge to develop new tangles that are magical, simple and easy to create. …We think pea-nuckle is just such a tangle. It’s made with only two elemental strokes. One is curved; one is straight. It is simple, yet its result is surprising.”

Zentangle pattern: Pea-nuckleI think how this one comes together will indeed surprise you. This illustrates it on a smaller scale than above. The step-by-step instructions for drawing Pea-nuckle are illustrated here, along with several of Molly’s Zentangles featuring Pea-nuckle with some variations.

Check out the tag mollyh for more of Molly’s tangles on TanglePatterns, and zentangle for all of the official Zentangle® patterns with online instructions.

    I have just done my very first zentangle and want to know as I can’t find it mentioned anywhere…the initial 4 dots and border that is drawn in pencil at the start of the zentangle project – is it to be then done in Micron pen at the end of the project or are the pencil lines to be erased?

  • Diana

    Pea-nuckle is so COOL!! Only thing I need to watch is keeping my line of Ss touching and the second set of straight lines narrow. I was inclined to fill the background space up with them but that loses the rope-y feel.

    Karen–when I start with the initial tile layout, I make sure I do the dots and border lightly and then erase them after if they are not covered by a design. Some of the tangle artists have artwork that does not cover the whole surface and there are areas of no designs–they may start with a fully closed border and then decide after they start that they don’t want to tangle in a certain area, and as result, they just erase the lightly drawn in border in that area. Congrats on your first tangle!! You are going to love zentangles!!
