Basketweave (weaving)

::"This article is about textile weaving. For other uses, see" Basketweave.Basketweave is a simple type of textile weave.

In basketweave, groups of warp and weft threads are interlaced so that they form a simple criss-cross pattern. Each group of weft threads crosses an equal number of warp threads by going over one group, then under the next, and so on. The next group of weft threads goes under the warp threads that its neighbor went over, and vice versa.

Basketweave can be identified by its checkerboard-like appearance made of two or more threads in each group.

Monkscloth is an example of a basketweave fabric.
