How to draw TYPZI

Sue Schneider’s Typzi tangle is a mate to her Odir tangle from earlier today.

Both tangles start with the same first three steps but then small changes in the next steps produce an entirely different but complementary ribbon-style tangle.

Recently Sue and her Pittsburgh tanglers met on a Saturday evening for “a bit of wine and your wine pattern series“.

We’ll be sampling wines and doing the related patterns: Chard, Gewurtz, Zin, Rosé, Shiraz and Chianti.

To add to the fun, I’ve come up with a new pattern for our (and your) amusement: Typzi.

Typzi came about while I was playing with another pattern Odir, from my Costa Rican travels.

It offers lots of possibilities for different fills.

The solid fill made me think of martini glasses, so I added an olive.

The radiating lines fill reminds me of gingko leaves, which are beginning to turn a golden yellow in my front yard.”

Typzi has a rather jaunty look to it, and how we ended up with more olives even surprised me 😉

Sue illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Typzi below and demonstrates several fill variations to explore.

    Dear Sue,
    I love Tipzy! It’s so much fun and versatile! The olives are the best part. Your tangles are always intriguing and they play well with others. Mary

  • Thanks for a couple of easy plays. And no, I didn’t need my tangle supplies to vote, we are such a small town, it’s walk in, vote and walk out all in about 5 minutes. 10 if I take time to visit with everyone I know!

    Absolutely love how this one comes together. Very clever! Just added it to my Tangle-A-Day calendar and will be using it in tiles for sure. Great pattern.
