Do you know if the file (svg. file of that tutorial) is in the Inkscape folder?
I'm not sure if I'm doing it right..

My guess is that its the shape you're after, not the pattern.........?
One curving :tool_pen: thick line, convert it to fill......change the thickness of the stroke to thiner on that fill .......

I know, but the tools for that technique are all available in inkscape although under different names. I just included it as a technique that can be done in Inkscape, not as a step by step.....

'zigzag' extension is able to get from a site http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3798&start=0 posted to "Inkscape & the Web" .
a similar sample with zigzag extension in 'metal mesh' thread.
