Coil is a tangle pattern that I developed after seeing the design in a Dover book about Architectural Elements.

I thought it was pretty easy to break down the steps so it can be easily done by hand.. I added the detail lines and shading so you can see what you can do with it. At the bottom I've shown a variation.

Tomorrow I'll add a piece that features 'coil'.


  1. Ooooh - I love this tangle pattern - have used it a lot ever since you posted it on the flickr group. Will definitely check in to see your work with it. Thanks

  2. me too. love this! Gotta practice it!

  3. I love this concept! Thanks so much for sharing. I teach a little art class in my home and used your ideas in my class. Thanks so much!
