My Patterns



This is the first pattern I have created. The name Kassandra is from the old cat living together with us. I studied her paws and they are white with black spots.


The pattern V-Lampz comes from a lamp I have in our staircase. It is made of glass and iron.


When I was a little child my mother used to weave in the evenings when me and my siblings were in bed. She often used a pattern called "Rosengång" and from that I made this pattern.

Mec Mec

My two boys had chocks of wood from wich they could make a lot of fantastic constructions. They had a lot of fun playing with that, and that´s were Mec Mec comes from.


I had a young student once who knew a lot about sharks. We studied sharks together. This pattern was developed out of those studies and I had a lot of trouble with it in the start, it didn´t come out the way I liked it. Then I found out similarities between human spine and the shark spine and there are similarities! The pattern came very natural after that!


Since our cat got her own pattern, our Pumi-dog Bisse had to get hers! She is born in Hungary and her Hungarian name is Puzstasarja Lencse so the name of the pattern is Lenche!

This tangle I made out of my best friends name. L is the first letter in his forname and O is the first letter in his last name. The pattern can be drawn in a grid or very freely. It can be used as a ribbon, a border, as a spacefiller or a solitaire. It is very simple to learn and relaxing to do. 


This was made for my father´s birthday 19th of April. I wanted it to be easy to learn but also have a strong approach.


Almost a grid-pattern! It looks like one and it can be drawn in a grid but it is not necessary. The name Iris is because it is made for our youngest dog, Iris. This pattern is obidient as she is but also very playful and may go in any direction. It can be drawn light and airy or heavy and darker. Hope you will like it!

Here I have created a pattern for my eldest son Gunnar as a celebration of his birthday! You can read more about this in my blogpresentation here.


I found a beautiful wallpaper that must be deconstructed to a tanglepattern! Here comes the step-out:

One never knows where or when a pattern will appear in front of you that just has to be deconstructed! This happened to me a while ago, when I saw a lamp in a designstore. I didn´t take a pic of it, but I immediately made a sketch on a piece of paper I found. As soon as I had a chance I started to play with it in my sketchbook. I let it stay there, I wasn´t sure if this could be something to go on with - could it be to simple? But I liked it and 1st of May I started to do it in my calendar:

Almost immediately an Oops appeared! That was what I was waiting for! A new possible variation! I love when things goes like that! This pattern could be drawn very freely or very regular. And there are a lot of possible embellishment to do. Or just shading. I had to try it on a tile:

No name yet, just a work-name! Here as a background to Onamato (Zt) and LO´s (mine). As Sandy Kelley Jones saw this she had the right name for it: LZ´s! Thank´s for the help Sandy! And here comes the Step-Out:

Very easy do draw! And in zentangle are NO misstakes, just possibilities! Hope you will enjoy this! Link to the blogpost here.
