ZIGGY - a new tangle

I don't remember where I saw this picture, but I just love it! In part it's the bright colors, but it's also a really interesting pattern.

It's the inspiration for my new tangle Ziggy.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Knase, Tripoli, Ziggy

This is how to draw Ziggy. It's a tangle that requires more concentration than some, especially starting at step #5. If your zigzags start going a bit haywire in step #6 don't worry, mine always do.
(Apologies for the shadowing. I had to scan it in two parts
and my computer likes to let everyone know where the division is!)
Here are a few ways to vary this tangle. I rather like it with the shading done only in pencil and without the thin ink lines.
Tangles: Dansk, N'zeppel, Tortuca, Verve, Ziggy

BTW: It's getting harder and harder to keep track of tangles and names. If this pattern has been presented elsewhere, or if the name has been used earlier, please let me know!


  1. Thanks so much for posting this, I cant wait to try it :)

  3. Ziggy looks wonderful and in my book of patterns I have no "Ziggy" or anything like it. Can't wait to try it!!! Do you sleep Margaret?
