Idly browsing Twitter recently I spotted someone with a little tile on their desk featuring Miffy the rabbit - a Dick Bruna character that has charmed children and adults alike for over 60 years! On this ceramic tile she is peeking out from behind a Delft style plate, with a charming border I couldn't resist working into a tangle.

She needed to get credit in the name - but sticking with my self-formed habit of 4-letter tangle named I'd like to introduce you all to Miff -

Changing the style of the line you draw in Step 2 can really alter the look. In addition, not pictured, you can draw it larger, with deeper cups for greater drama. You could also have them overlapping, or back to back as a filler pattern.
As always, if this tangle is too similar to any others in name or style, please let me know. And obviously, have fun with it and let me know how you get on!
