Tootle Step-out

I consider "Tootle" a tangelation of Tripoli. Like Tripoli, it can be tricky to draw perfectly. In fact, I myself am incapable of drawing it perfectly. In this struggle, I recommend taking Advantage of the three lines - you can always add one or leave one out as needed. It just looks better than a squashed triangle. (Even though you will see some squashed triangles in my examples!)

In trying - and failing - to find a good name that was a play on "Tripoli", I stumbled across the word "Tootle" which is related to "toddle" and means to walk in an aimless or carefree manner. Perfect!

If I have overlooked somone else's step-out to this pattern or one much like it, please let me know!
