The linked SVG image below, which I made in Inkscape, consists of a circle filled with a gradient and a freehand line. I'd like to extend the black border of the circle to the freehand line, so that the violet line acquires a thin black border all around it (and it visually proceeds from the circle). What is the best way to do this?

You can select the freehand line and apply stroke to path:

Stroke to path

After this, you can apply the desired style:

  • Possibly doing a Path > Union after the Path > Stroke to Path.
