An Experiment in Plaid

Patons Classic, mesh with woven chain.

An Experiment in Plaid
Experiment for plaid pattern, woven technique, and stitch to shrink result. Result: did not get the plaid aesthetic I was looking for, vertical stripes were not bold enough. Could work for a thinner fabric, thinner plaid pattern. Shrink at -40%w & h.

I know it's not what you were trying for - love the results, though!

About Japanese books - The Kinokuniya bookstore is located in the Seattle Int'l District Uwajimaya (near the King St Station), and has loads. You may have to go to Seattle for that; I've been to other Uwajimaya stores in WA and no books.
