Summer and Winter
"Summer and winter is a name traditionally, in the US, given to a Compound weave having patterns formed by a supplementary weft, closely held in a 3/1 weft float over 3 and under 1 warp end, or conversely, under 3 and over 1 warp end." Summer and Winter and other two-tie unit weaves- by Harriet Tidball.
The great thing about S&W to me is the different effects you can achieve by playing around with the tabby order or the tie-down order, not to mention the color choices in warp, wefts, and even tabby. A subject worth years of study. This and overshot might be my favorite go-to weaves!
