My tangle pattern: Japonica

I've had this pattern for months, and for some reason, just never got around to posting it.  It is a bit similar to my pattern Inersis (http://lifeimitatesdoodles.blogspot.com/2010/05/my-tangle-patterns-inersis.html) but it's created in a totally (and eaiser) fashion.  It reminds me of a stack of turbans!, but it's great for borders or strings or you can group it together to get a floral look.


  1. This one has so much flexibility and possibilities. I love it when ideas for the weekend start piling into my head! Thanks for pattern, it is lovely.

  2. Thank you! Can't wait to see what you do!

  3. Fantastic pattern, I love it ! Thank you for sharing.

  4. Another great pattern! I just used thylcum (?) I think I spellled that right. Anyway, I got a moleskine journal and my first zt used it. I'll send a pic when I'm finished.

  5. I knew I would like this because I like Inersis so much... this is, indeed, much easier to draw. Thanks again!

  6. Kellie, Please do send the pic. I can't wait to see it. Japonica has already proved to be a popular pattern. I think I've seen it used more than any other of my patterns except for lacy!

    I'm not sure why it took me so long to post it. I wasn't sure if people would like it, lol! Just shows how much I have to learn yet.

    Thank goodness. It would be so boring to know it all!

  7. Thank you all for your compliments, and thank you all for using the pattern. I've really enjoyed seeing it pop up in so many ZTs!
