How to draw CROISSANT

Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Happy Monday, y’all. Today the Northeast USA is busy digging out from the weekend’s winter storm dubbed “Snowzilla” by The Washington Post.

Most surprising to me was to hear of the historic flooding caused by the storm surge along the Mid-Atlantic coastline, the beach erosion and other flooding photos in this article are pretty shocking. We pray everything will return to normalcy quickly.

Today’s easy Croissant tangle is from another Taiwan tangler, Yu Ru Chen, and it’s her first on the site.

Understandably croissants are popular around the world including in Taiwan, and their spiral roll shapes inspired Yu Ru to name her tangle Croissant. She writes “I love curly figure, so draw the pattern based on rolls.”

My example of Croissant is a tiny bit different from Yu Ru’s end result because I liked what I saw when I reached Step 5. If you have difficulty drawing the scroll shapes, try envisioning them as a very curvy number 6 with an extra swirl in the middle. Step 1’s dot in the middle of the grid square gives you something to aim for while effectively dividing the grid square in half.

Yu Ru illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Croissant below and features it in a lovely monotangle.

Happy Australia Day tomorrow to all our tangling friends down under!

January 26th is Australia Day! For more about Australia ‘s national holiday, visit Arcodos from 2015. I did and was reminded of more delicious foods, much like Croissants:

When I was doing a little research on the traditions of celebrating this fine summer holiday I learned about some yummy-sounding Australian foods I’d never heard of before like snags and dampers and Lamingtons and friands. And though I’ve heard of Pavlovas, the Aussies have a whole encyclopedia of ways with Pavlovas.

Myself, think I’ll whip up a batch of Anzac Biscuits. Enjoy!
