How to draw KNYT

Zentangle pattern: Knyt. 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 very clever tangle pattern deconstruction comes from Australian tangler, Lyndel Churchill from Tasmania‘s capital city of Hobart. Knyt is Lyndel’s first pattern on the site.

Knyt is an interesting combination of simple steps requiring your concentration. Don’t attempt, as I did in my first efforts, to start out the first step joining each of the strokes as one line. It doesn’t work. Obviously, I wasn’t paying attention! As with many tangles, Knyt really pops when you add a touch of shading.

Lyndel introduces herself:

I’m very new to Zentangle, I only started in late April this year but am already obsessed. My Mum gave me a DVD by Jane Monk about Zentangle and quilting and I started drawing straight away and love it! I work part-time for our State Government and live with my husband and nine-year-old son just south of Hobart. In my spare time (before Zentangle) I do digital scrapbooking and other miscellaneous crafts as my mood takes me.

Since starting to draw tangles I have been much more aware of shapes and textures around me. Last weekend on the way home from my son’s soccer game I was studying the texture of a scarf my mother had knitted for me. I couldn’t wait to get home and grab a pen and paper to see if I could find a way to draw the texture. It came together really quickly and I am really quite thrilled with the result. :-)”

Lyndel illustrates the steps for drawing her Knyt tangle below along with a sample of what you can do with it.
