Houndstooth – Know your patterns


Part 2 in our series of patterns.

Our little way of learning more and more about fashion and the details thereof. Today, it’s Misha’s (girlfriend) favourite pattern..she actually made me do this post.

Houndstooth is a traditionally a duotone textile pattern with a distinctive tessellating check pattern. It originated in the woven wool cloth of Scotland and is also known as dogstooth or even puppytooth for smaller scale versions of the pattern. It should come as no surprise that it apparently looks like the tooth of a dog. Hmph. Ok. Here are some examples.

Okay. Stay fancy.
