I made another video demonstrating how to make a 5-pointed pinwheel design. This design is not for beginners – I’ve labeled it “Intermediate”. See more tips below the video.
You can use this technique with other wheel and ring combinations. It works best with patterns of 8 points or less. Try these variations:
- Instead of holes 1-2-3-4-5-6 etc., try 1-3-5-7-9-11 etc.
- Instead of moving the wheel right 2 teeth, move it over just 1 tooth. Or move it to the left instead of to the right.
- Play with different color combinations. Try a gradient effect if you have pens in different greens and blues. Or use the colors of the rainbow. Or your favorite colors in some other combination.
