Tangle of the Week - Keeko
This week's tangle is dedicated to "mcelroyfam" who commented on the last tangle. Good point - I mention Keeko, but don't say what it looks like. So here it is. Keeko is a very simple pattern, but it makes a perfect filler behind more complicated patterns. If you draw the lines fairly straight, it has a nice cross-hatching feel. If you curve the lines a little, it becomes more three dimensional - like a basket. I've noticed, in my classes, how differently each student draws this pattern. Some do tiny, tight lines that look like mesh or screen. Others do large, almost cartoony, curved lines that look like woven, puffy yarn... so experiment with size and line thickness.
