Submitted by SallyE on Thu, 09/29/2011 - 23:38 Do plaids count as stripes? They are actually strips in both directions! I had an idea for a plain that I want to do next.

So getting the sett right and weaving it so that there are the same number of shots per inch in the warp per inch as there are threads per inch in the weft will be the challange.

Hopefully one of my next projects will be plaid :) Good luck whith whatever you pick for yourself!
