Line designs are geometric patterns formed entirely by the use of straight line segments that product the illusion
of a curve. When first seeing one of these designs you will have to look closely to convince yourself that no
curved lines are used. This interesting property produces fascinating results yet line designs are relatively
simple to do.
How are they made?
These line designs are formed by connecting certain sequences of points with line segments. Different designs
are formed by selecting points in various ways. The most common way is to connect equally-spaced points
along the two sides of an angle as shown and described below:

3. Using the grid as a guide, draw a vertical line (up/down) that spans 8 squares.
4. Draw a horizontal line (across) that connects to the vertical line that spans 8 squares.
5. Connect point A with point A, point B with point B, and so on as shown by the figure below:
A B C D E F G A B C D E F G
