Ionic (or Ionic Border, as it seems to work well that way) is a simple design I came up with quite a while ago. The elements bear a resemblance to the Ionic style capitals of Greek columns, thus the name. I used it in the second tile I posted yesderday for Sue Jacob's challenge Alphabet Soup.
Both sides of this linear pattern are open, which can make it a little tricky to link or blend to a pattern beside it. You get to exercise your creativity! It also can be embellished somewhat, or left simple.
Here are the drawing directions.
Here are three tiles using Ionic. It's interesting how, next to some other tangles, the base line sort of disappears and the tangle looks like a series of curlicues.
