  • I think the key points here are that you need to make the blend between 3 lines. So a blend from line A to B to A and I don't know if there's a better way, but to connect the ends, you may have to add a new anchor point (with pen tool for example) close to the starting point. – Joonas May 3 '19 at 6:43

I'm assuming you know how to create a blend in Illustrator. If not, see here.

  • Create the blend vertically.

  • Draw a semi-cricle path

  • Select the blend and the semi-circle and choose Object > Blend > Replace Spine

  • At this point it'll look wrong. So choose Object > Blend > Blend Options

  • Change the orientation to "Align to Path" rather than to "Align to Page" (The right option should be depressed, see below)

  • adjust the "Specified Steps" as necessary.


The path used for the spine can be any path. The procedure is essentially the same for any blend which does not follow a straight path....
