I don't really know what the lure is of hounds tooth, but it is a really neat classic design! I feel like I have definitely woven my share of it!
Right now I am working on a 2/2 twill hounds tooth scarf in worsted weight yarn sett at 8 epi. I am hoping to get a feel for what a doubleweave blanket would look like woven in similar yarn (maybe different colors...). What I really like the most about this weave is how sturdy it feels compared to the 8-shaft version with floats that are 4 threads long. The 8-shaft version feels so flimsy and the yarn can catch on rings, zippers, or other things. As 2/2 twill, the longest floats are only 2 threads long, and I really like how solid it is weaving up.
And now, a word from our sponsor.... bubble boy!
