One of my earliest loves in this art method, is a classic tangle from Zentangle® co-founder, Maria Thomas - Crescent Moon.
Much has been written about it in books, many examples of the wide world of possibilities flood the internet (including this past post of mine - click here to view), and most students use this tangle in their first completed tile.
Let's get back to our roots and devote this challenge to getting reacquainted with this simple, yet magical pattern.
We will use this string ~

I include this string, as with all strings, as a suggestion. If you prefer to begin with another idea for your Crescent Moon monotangle, please do.
Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away! Keep in mind that string lines are suggestions and let the patterns lead the way.
