My tangle pattern "Slalom"


The happiest of Holidays to everyone.  What with Simplicity challenges and the beginning of the New Year peeking around the corner, I thought today was a good one to give you a tangle that focuses on one of the most basic of designs.

An Ogee pattern?  You know, those in and out lines that make you think of a string of garlic bulbs — only lots prettier and not nearly as stinky. 

If you are a designer of any kind you need to know the term Ogee.  But for us enthusiastic tanglers, the important thing is that they are awesome-looking, but they can be hard to do well.  I often look at my attempts and wish they were more even.

Well.  The answer to that is always – practice.  So I came up with an exercise for myself, and, hey! It was fun.  Kind of like finger skiing down the page.  And I think it looks cool too. 

So now it’s a tangle, and you can spend these cold wintry mornings exercising with garlic bulbs.
