How to draw YABBUT

Zentangle pattern: Yabbut. 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.Canadian artist and CZT® Margaret Bremner created the stylish Yabbut tangle pattern.

It’s always interesting to me to learn how tangle names come about. “A while ago some family members were having a conversation and one said, ‘…yeah, but…’  I thought, ‘Yabbut? Yabbut! That would be a great tangle name.’ I wrote it down, waiting for the right time,” Margaret writes.

This grid-based tangle is one where you’ll want to be focused when you’re filling in the solid areas to get the pattern to turn out as intended … voice of experience 😉 By substituting circle shapes in place of the squares in the second step, you get an interesting variation.

Margaret illustrates the steps for drawing her Yabbut tangle here, along with an example Zentangle® tile using Yabbut.

      Hi Jerry, if you are drawing a Zentangle then it is always on the 3 1/2-inch tile. I personally favor “real Zentangles” for all the reasons that are the Zentangle method: relaxing, meditative, abstract, convenient, portable, fun, and so on. At this scale the result is always beautiful and intriguing.

      However, Zentangle-inspired drawings can be on any media you choose, and the tangles at any scale you choose. Hope this answers your question.
