Notes: 

Using this same long-striping yarn as warp and weft results in a faux-plaid appearance. If woven with a solid color, a self-striping or possibly faux-ikat could have resulted (hmmm, must go dig up that other skein of Decor ...)

Woven from one skein, measured out half as warp and used remaining as weft, with some left over.

Twisted fringe.

Woven as one of the class samples for Weave Now: Basic Rigid Heddle Weaving -- this was the one warped along with the participants :-).
