Re: [BKARTS] plain weave



Most typically, yes, you get those diagonal parallel lines with a twill.
But there are literally thousands of different twills (including some that
are called broken twills and satins/damasks which are derived from twill)
where those diagonals aren't there.
    The diagonals develop in the "jeans twill" (which I think is an "over 2,
under 1" structure if I remember correctly) because the "over 2" advances
one warp thread to the right with succeeding rows of weft.  This is very
typical for the simple twills.
