Link to Tangle pattern "Ixorus"

Rick and Maria Thomas have posted the latest newsletter, which includes a new pattern, Ixorus.  They've come up with a new zentangle terminology, tangleation.  I find it very interesting because many of my patterns are tangleations (as are the patterns of others).  I've often wondered whether these words should have separate names.

Once you've read the article, let me know what you think.  I'd be interested to hear.


  1. "Variation" works just fine for me. I find that "tangleation" looks and sounds like a mouthful. Or maybe I'm missing the point entirely. Yeah, I probably am. ^_^

    I love Skinny Stray Cat :)

  3. I prefer variation too and it's pretty clear what the word means. Tangleation, not so much. Looks like there could be a few of us who're missing the point :-)
