How to draw SATI

Zentangle pattern: Sati. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized reproduction or distribution (including pinning) of this copyrighted work is illegal.Sati is a lovely tangle from UK tangler Jem Miller (aka Ragged Ray), who’s previously shared her Snag and Kitl tangles with us.

While my example is very simple, Sati is actually very verSATIle and Jem illustrates many ways it can be varied.

Jem writes,

When Sati first starting appearing in my sketchbook last year I couldn’t be sure it wasn’t a tangle that already existed. But I’ve kept an eye open ever since and haven’t spotted anything quite like it.

It nods to familiar tangles and techniques – building on those Quandary and Fife style rice shapes but caring more about what comes between them. Getting the basic rice grid down first is helpful, but it’s fairly forgiving too.

The version with the dot in the centre is easier to begin with, till you get the hang of the spacing and then you can omit it, which allows for different looks.

You can choose to fill the ‘flower’ shapes, or the sections between them. And it can be embellished in countless ways – hence the name. I’d originally chosen Versa, from versatile, but that’s already a tangle! So instead, the next few letters on – Sati.

On my my step-out I show the two versions as seeds, and then how they look formed together and then auraed.  I’ve added simple shading suggestions.  And a couple of variations. 

My tile itself is a monotangle, just to pack in even more alternatives.  But it’s a tangle that plays well with others too!

Jem illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Sati below, showing in the first row how to draw it with the dot grid and in the second row without the grid, along with several very pretty variations. All of Jem’s variations are lovely and I particularly like the one on the bottom left that looks like they’re “stitched” together à la CZT Mary Elizabeth Martin’s Laced. Laced is one of the first tangles posted on the site way back in 2010.
