I had fun with this one, even though I had to get a tutorial from Birdie on fescu. She draws it better than anyone. Between the odd string and the limited “palette,” this turned out rather unusual.

Pattern as total value - the closer the lines, the deeper the value.
Opening the center of the pattern helps to create form.
Great fun forcing myself to change the size of the lines within the pattern...

And here is Day2 along with Day1 by Maria Vennekens in her beautiful calendar.
I am going to get one of those calendars next year.
Sharon Matys, CZT from Grafton, MA, sent in this beauty.
I love the symmetry in this one. And clearly she paid attention to Beckah's advice for keeping her strokes even.
Are you tangling with us? Please link below or send me your creation and I'll add it. Keep checking back as it takes me a bit of time to update the post with new information.

interstingly, I found Nekton to be very challenging while practicing it in my sketchbook, and even more challenging using in my tile! Wondering if it's because it's a bit less "structured"...not sure. I guess I'll have use it more often...now that's a good challenge!
