Tangle of the week: Ciceron

This time we’re looking at a slightly more complicated tangle, Ciceron.┬áTutorial here – it’s the second one down.

Ilana and Ciceron

I say complicated, it’s still just simple pen strokes repeated, but I know from my own experience that the layout can take a bit of thought.

For the fun, interlocking look, you need to make sure you start with an offset grid of circles like this:

I get myself in less of a muddle if I draw all the lines in one direction first

Then turn the paper 90 degrees and draw the lines in the other direction

And finally the curves to fill up the spaces

Here’s a quick scribble of how it looks if you don’t start with an offset grid, which is still pretty, but less interesting I feel.

What do you think of Ciceron? Do you prefer the interlocking version or the straight one? Let me know in the comments!
