Ah, yes I see the zig-zag. Maybe the KW would be a 2 then. It's kind of made up of balls that are close together, rather than the honeycomb with a lot of open space of the Rubis.

Brilliant. Thanks for the photos! This discussion is SF at it's best.

adding dots to this threak, their are two types of dots done on knits:

You'll notice one has different color thread sewn on (done afterwards) and the other has the color added to the silk.



My pic below stinks but my favorite weave is the one below, hard to tell but its a bigger, looser weave than what radicaldog has posted. You can see the difference compared the dot one which is more of a type 2:

Regarding another matter on the Drake's knit ties, they're advertised as being 7cm at width, strangely every one of my four knit ties are roughly 5.8cm at their widest. Has anyone else noticed this?
