Dingbatz Tangle Lesson # 173

Dingbatz or Dingbats depending on if you are a tangler or not. 
Yes it is a real word and thing. I love drawing them. Enjoy!
 In typography, a dingbat (sometimes more formally known as a printer's ornament or printer's character) is an ornament, character, or spacer used in typesetting, often employed for the creation of box frames. The term continues to be used in the computer industry to describe fonts that have symbols and shapes in the positions designated for alphabetical or numeric characters.

I did a few singles of tangle patterns so I had a reference to go by. Enjoy!

Striping Tangle Lesson Pattern #162

Striping tangle is one of the original 102 tangles. I love this tangle, it is easy and yet gives such dramatic results. I hope to take the mystery out of this tangle. How to make it look 3D with easy curved lines and shading.

 Look at the two tangle above and see if you can tell a difference one is stringed with a pen the other with pencil.  Below you see the pencil one in close up.  I thought I would have time to finish it but alas it gets posted unfinished.  Much better with the pencil string.
