Back in Zendala Challenge #9, I came up with a new pattern that I am calling Verve. I must credit my Husband with coming up with the name. I was stuck and asked for his help. I asked him to tell me what word or name comes to mind when he saw that design and he said "Verve". I'm not really sure that it visually embodies the definition of the word, but it works for me. :)
The pattern is really quite simple and will easily fit into a circle shape that pops up in your string. I have been toying with it in some other designs that I have been working on. I have tried to carry the pattern into a line if you will. I'm still working on it but I am enjoying the process.
I start with a 6 and a 9 that wrap around the circle. You can "wave" the stems quite a bit to add interest. I have just been shading where the lines "tuck" into each other but I imagine that shading where the lines bend will add some more dimension to the look as well. Also, the center circle can be filled in with anything you'd like or just left empty.
I hope that you like this one. It has been a lot of fun for me. I confess, I have to fight myself to keep from filling every rounded space with this one.
