The Maze pattern is a great pattern. Though it can come across a little confusing with the directions, once everything is explained, it’s rather easy. This doesn’t have to be shaded but I liked the look of the shading and thought it was really eye catching. The easiest way to explain this pattern is that we are wrapping chevrons on each side of our center mark to create a box. When we alternate the colors, we create a pattern that looks like a spiral. Here are a few examples from the visual wrap program.
This one is a 2 color maze and a different colored background. So 3 colors total to create.
This one is just a smaller version of the maze. Thinner bands, so probably 2 bands of thread instead of the five that we are using.
This is a modified maze. It appears to have started with a bigger band on the inside and gradually decreases as it wraps out ward. The line goes from thick to skinny. Looking at all the different examples and styles that can be wrapped with the maze, you can see it is quite versatile and easily changed.
