How to draw EYEHOOK

The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.The sewing enthusiasts among us will enjoy this fun and delicate tangle pattern.

Eyehook was created by Port St. Lucie, Florida, CZT® Debbie Perdue,

inspired by the hook and eyes in my sewing kit. Not that I am doing much sewing lately as my ‘need to tangle’ is all consuming.”

Debbie recently contributed Drip-Drop to our tangle collection.

Eyehook is easy to draw and as Debbie shows us below it has a lot of potential for embellishment. At first I turned my tile 180° for each eye, but then discovered that drawing them “sideways” was a simpler way to go for me.

Here are Debbie’s step-by-step instructions for drawing her tangle and two beautiful Zentangles showing ways to use Eyehook.

  • Thanks for the heads up on the mystery books.
    I don’t have a Kindle, but I use the Kindle app for my iPhone.

  • Laurie, CZT #5

    I love the tangle, and I’m very interested in the tangle that is the foundation for the left-hand tile…which kind of looks like roof tiles. Is there a name for it? Directions for it?

  • Brinn McFetridge

    Eye hook looks like lots of fun! Thanks. I’m looking forward to working it into one of my tangles.


  • Gerri McCullough

    Thank you for letting us know about the books and how to do the tangle. 🙂

  • LindyLu

    LOVE! this tangle. Also, love the foundation tangle and wonder what is the name and is ther a tutorial? Thanks for sharing.

  • mary

    I was glad you asked, laurie about the foundation tangle, because i’m wondering the same thing! both are beautiful tangles

  • This is an absolutely BRILLIANT tangle! What a great idea/inspiration, using a hook/eye! LOVE it! I really like your variation of it too, Linda, up in the corner – simple but beautiful!

    Thanks for the tip on the Kindle books too – I subscribe to a couple of free Kindle book-blogs and didn’t notice these books on either of those lists, so got them from this link. (I can’t believe how MANY MANY MANY free Kindle books there are – too many to even begin to keep up with! If anyone loves to read and doesn’t have a Kindle yet, I HIGHLY recommend getting one and subscribing to a couple of the free-Kindle-book-blogs!)
