Tangle Pattern: Vercut

Lately I have been working on decorating wooden boxes.  You know the craft wood kind that you can get at craft stores?  It has been a lot of fun and IF I get my act together, I'll do a post about it.  While working on the boxes however, I think I came up a new pattern.  If it isn't, please let me know and I'll take this down.  The "world" of tangle patterns grows ever bigger each day so I'm not sure if this pattern is already out there.

I am calling this pattern Vercut as it is a blending of Versa and Yincut.  It really is quite simple to do and steps 3 and 4 can even be combined as you are going along.  I did shading in the example, but as you can see in the box top, it looks nice without shading too.

Originally, I didn't create this as a grid pattern, well, I started with a dot grid.  After I started drawing the design however, I realized that I was drawing the grid in as I did steps 3 and 4, so I went ahead and drew the grid.

I hope you like it, and again, please let me know if this design is already out there.
