[Edit: this was written in May 2010, I’ve long since mastered this fun tangle!]

In their newsletter, Rick and Maria describe it as “Simple to do and fun to watch unfold.” I’ll have fun when I finally get this one! As with many tangle patterns, the trick is to remember to turn your tile as you draw. Hmmm, think I forgot to do that.

UPDATE February 29, 2020 – Project Pack #08. As part of the Dancing in the Moonlight series, in this Day 1 video, Maria’s daughter and CZT Molly Hollibaugh demonstrates how to tangle Munchin:

January 2013 update: CZT Margaret Bremner posted a tutorial on an alternative way to draw Munchin here. The result isn’t as free and organic as the original tangle, but it’s another way to go.
