I’m obsessed with the houndstooth check pattern of weaving.

Houndstooth check requires a different warping and weaving style. It’s not the three layer warp method. It’s definitely not bias weaving. It isn’t exactly two-layer warping though it most closely resembles that style. Because of its roguish nature, you can play around with it a lot while warping, and even a bit while weaving. It produces this fascinating geometric design. I’m not all that crazy about the end result; it’s the process that grips me.
