The focus tangle of the week at the Shading Zentangle Facebook group is Tagh, a very minimalist scalloped tangle. This gives me the chance to play with it. I thought -- how about using Tagh over a Crescent Moon-ish string?

The other tangle there is a sort of Shattuck ribbon. Someone in my FB group said (thanks Karen!) it looked like Ragz by Christina Vandervlist (stepout here).
Another person emailed me (thanks Sharyn!) and said it looks like Baton by Carole Ohl (stepout here).
