Curvy line tangles

African Artist is the challenge tangle this week. It's the one all around the border. As I was working with it I was thinking about all the other tangles that start out in the same way - with curvy lines. So I pulled all the similar tangles out of my files and put as many as I could into this tile. I could only fit 7 into this tile so I drew an entire sheet with all the ones I found. I'm sure there are more out there that I haven't included - if there is one you know of that I should include please let me know!

It's amazing that so many tangles can start out in the same way but still look so different. 

Click on this picture to enlarge it for the details. (Sorry it's sideways!) I added shading to the bottom half of each tangle but of course, you can adapt the shading however you want.


  1. I love how you used African Artist as a border-I would never have thought of that. Thank you for sharing your collection of curvy line tangles-it looks pretty thorough to me;-)

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing your collection! Your tile is so beautiful!

  3. That shape is oh so handy, fits anywhere and curves around anything! Thanks Sue for sharing !

  4. Thanks for sharing them all :-) Your tile is beautiful.

  5. Very nice of you to share a collection like this. It is a unique way to start a tangle and there's not a whole lot of them. Your tile is lovely!
