How to draw INGWI

Zentangle pattern: Ingwi. 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.Today’s lovely Ingwi tangle is from German CZT Silke Diefenbach.

Silke was visiting her Mom on Mother’s Day and noticed a pattern on one of her mother’s plates. “This plate inspired me for my first deconstructed pattern. I called it ‘Ingwi’  – similar to my mother´s name.”

Silke tells us about herself and her discovery of Zentangle®:

I live in Germany near Frankfurt am Main.

Since I was a child I love to draw and to be creative.

On my trips to Nepal ( my first trip was in 1997) I got to know Buddhism and the meaning of Mindfulness, I  was fascinated. Since this time, I try to integrate mindfulness in my life.

In October 2015 I discovered these wonderful drawings of different patterns on the world wide web, and in November 2015 I decided to become a CZT as soon as possible. I realized that Maria and Rick created a method that combines creativity and mindfulness in a perfect way.

In April 2016 I attended the 22nd CZT seminar in Providence, RI.

Besides Zentangle I love to draw with pencils and to paint / to do Mixed Media Art. I love to be creative and I wish to inspire others.

Silke illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Ingwi here on her blog and in her beautiful tiles she shows several ways of using Ingwi as a ribbon or border tangle, as a focal point, or as a fill tangle for a section of a Zentangle tile.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please do leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours.

    Oh, dear! It looks like such a lovely pattern, but INGWI is so tiny in the blog, I can’t see the stepout. I think maybe I need to use “magnifier” mode, I’m getting so old, lol (is 63 old anymore?)!

    • Care

      I clicked on the link for her blog and found the pattern very easy to see and printed it off on a full sheet of paper so it was very readable. Don’t give up! It IS there!!

  • Sue Zanker

    Lovely pattern! My week’s end project. I didn’t have any trouble with the size Joyce. Just make it bigger after you transfer it to ‘Word’. I have a magnifying lamp to be able to work on tiny stuff these days, I guess being 74 might have something to do with it as well I guess !
    Thanks Silke for sharing and to Linda yet again for ‘spreading the (tangling) word, worldwide!

  • Sue Leslie CZT22

    Thanks Silke. This is a lovely tangle. Enjoyed meeting you at CZT 22 Maybe our paths will cross again some day. Happy Tangleing to you.

  • Statch

    It’s a beautiful pattern. Thanks for sharing it!

  • Hi…I´m very happy that my pattern INGWI is part of this page now. I changed my Homepage ( the picture with the step-outs was too tiny) and you can see it in big size now…
    Wish you much fun and happy tangling… :-))

  • Awesome work! Thanks Silke for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us! I’ve not had time to test this out yet but it looks cool and fun! Love it!

  • Nice pattern! Thank you! Nancy CZT18
