Looping around

A week ago I looked at the common shapes that we use on pattern-collections.com to create patterns.

Shapes-used-in-Tangle-Patterns

We picked them all because they are easy to draw – EVERYONE can draw these shapes, artist or non-artist!

There is one shape missing on this list though: The Loop

Loop

A few pattern designers jumped at the idea to have a play with loops to see what we can come up with. Well, within a week we managed to come up with over 80 new step-outs.

My biggest eye opener was when I used the half loop and turned, twisted, and connected this half loop in different ways.

Bam – suddenly I created this pattern – known as Cadent.

Cadent is drawn completely different though!

As you can see, the original Cadent uses a dot grid and then wraps an S-shape around the orbs. Cadent Reborn begins with a half loop and grows from there. This allows for more flexibility.

Without giving it any thought, I continued to play around with those half loops, and out came Y-Full Power Reborn (took me a while to find the original pattern), Funlz Reborn,  and Full Funls Reborn.

There is more to come during the course of next week!

And here is some artwork I created using the above patterns:

Right now we are busy preparing for TangleMania Frankfurt 2017! It’s only 4 weeks away. We are all totally excited! I will have to talk really really fast because there is so much to tell!
