also known as checker weave, is a straightforward technique in which the weft
crosses over and under one warp at a time. When the weft passes over or under
more than one warp at a time, it results in a decorative pattern known as twilling.
Plaiting can also be done on a diagonal, or bias, weave. (In plaiting the weft
is the active weaving element and the warp is the foundation element.)
