While trying out Laura Harms, "Weekly Challenge #2", which was to try out Margaret Bremner's "2-pencil string technique", I came up with a tangle that reminds me of a measuring tape. Only you'd get strange results if you ever tried measuring with it, lol!
You don't have to use the 2-pencil (or pen, in my case) technique, but it will give you a more even ribbon-like appearance.
While drawing up the example for this, I also tried the technique to draw "Slalom". It definitely takes up some room. If you try, be sure you don't put the circles too close!
