How to draw TRIMOND

Zentangle pattern: TrimondThe lovely and quite festive-if-you-want-it-to-be tangle Trimond (not to be confused with Trimonds) comes to us from West Virginia tangler Beth Snoderly.

Beth has shared several great tangle patterns and strings with the Zentangle® community here on TanglePatterns. You can locate them all by searching for her last name in the “Search TanglePatterns” box at the top right of the page.

{While I’m on the subject of using the site … I received an inquiry yesterday asking how to locate the most recent tangles on the site and I thought this might be useful for others who aren’t aware how to find them. It’s as simple as visiting the home page (click on the TanglePatterns logo at the top of any page) and scrolling down. All the recent posts are listed below the “Join TanglePatterns” welcome message with the most recent first. This is also a good way to check to see if you’ve missed anything, or just feel like browsing.}

Beth’s Trimond is a versatile tangle as you’ll see in her illustration below. She tells us how Trimond developed:

This pattern started from a photo I found online. I had to embellish as I went along, the last embellishment was an accident. I made the triangle upside down in the second row and I liked how it looked when finished, so I added it to every other row. I added the triangle in the middle to give an idea where the teardrops would meet each other. Shading could be added to create depth.

As is usually the case with most tangles, it helps to turn your tile as you are drawing so your hand is in the most comfortable position for repeating the same stroke. I found this particularly useful for me in Step 4 below.

Beth illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Trimond below. She shows it here in a border or ribbon-style version as well as a grid-based monotangle with a pretty variation in alternating rows.
