Dukagang fashion of weaving

I am weaving these samples for my Tied Weaves Study Group in the dukagang fashion. Weaving 15 samples  of the same thing over and over is a great way to really see what your draft and treadling is doing. Anyway, it is for me.

Single Two-Tie (aka Summer and Winter) can be woven in several different ways to get really different effects. I usually weave my tie downs in 1-2-2-1 order or 2-1-1-2 order. But with these samples I am weaving with using 1-1-1-1 order. That is what I am calling 'weaving in dukagang fashion'. (I could have used only tie down 2). I like the looks of the clean blocks, and the speckled background reminds me of the specks you get in the background of overshot or crackle.
