Choosing Weaves

You can choose weaves from the Weave Selector on the Weaves palette. In addition, you can change the way a weave displays at any time. You can also use the four sliders at the bottom of the Weaves palette to control the thickness of threads and the spacing between them. The top two sliders control horizontal dimensions; the bottom two control vertical dimensions. By adjusting these sliders, you can create a wide variety of weaves with any one of the patterns supplied.
