To make a light, accurate, and reliable outlined stroke, you need the right pen. This one is adapted from the five-pointed music staff pen that used to be the easiest way to rule off parallel lines for writing musical notes. I used wire cutters to remove points 1, 2, and 4. You could experiment with other configurations, including all five points, as seen in Staves (March 25). It makes a big letter but the lines are clear.
In lieu of adapting a music pen, you could try a scroll pen, a notched marker, or two sharpies rubber-banded together. But keep the points narrow in relation to the width of the stroke, or you'll be into a group of Stripey alphabets (see July 17).
