Twill Overlay
This scheme gives an unstructured, random walk double-twill peg plan. Used without constrain it produces a mess, but it works well when confined within a marquee (as in the examples given below).


Twill Walk
This scheme gives a unstructured, wandering twill peg plan, without repeats. It works best when confined to a marquee and repeated (as was done in the examples given below).


Random Walk
The Random Walk peg plan produces a restless, non-repeating pattern which always look tangled (a “deranged cat’s cradle”).

Watch for long floats in the weft, which are easily fixed by inserting plain weave with the pencil tool into the white gaps and solid black areas in the peg plan.

Random walk peg plans are hard for the eye to follow; consider using them sparingly with a marquee to impose a repeat.


These peg plans are unbalanced; they give above-average exposure to the warp in some places, in others the weft is more pronounced. There is a slow drift from one condition to the other. In the illustrations at the left, the warp is shown in black, so this effect is particularly easy to see.


As its name suggests, this scheme gives many short twill strokes which either crisscross or run parallel (see illustration below).

There is not usually any natural repeat in this effect, so use a marquee and a repeat block to impose more order.


Tabby Twill
This scheme creates a blend of tabby and twill. The illustrations on the left show horizontal bands of nearly pure tabby separated by bands of twill-like regions.

The examples shown here were selected because they show the “tabby & twill” effect clearly; many of the fabrics generated by this scheme are more complex and subtle than those shown here.
