Peanuckle is made with only two elemental strokes: one is curved, one is straight. Or kind of straight anyway. It is often considered a high focus tangle, but once you get the hang of it, you might decide its subtle weaving lines flow together quite intuitively and elegantly. It is simply constructed, yet its result is surprising and perhaps a bit complicated.
Peanuckle was discovered accidentally when Molly was “drawing” over a logo on some paperwork. The logo was made up of two letter S’s stacked. As she played around with the negative spaces and how to connect the letters, a new tangle was born.
Although some believe the name of this tangle is in reference to the peanut shape it resembles, the tangle name was inspired by a playful name Molly called her second baby before she was born.
