MAY BE DUPLICATE. My original post did not upload, so I'm recreating this from memory. Do posts appear immediately?
I am weaving a stole for a friend. I am a newish weaver. Everything was going fine until this afternoon when I was leisurely reading Daryl Lancaster's blog. She sparked a memory of her interview on Weavecast where I think I remember her saying that the sett for articles of clothing should be more dense than the sett for scarves. This has sparked a bevy of questions:
1. Did I remember correctly that the sett for clothing is tighter?
2. How do you determine the appropriate sett for clothing as opposed to scarves?
3. For the purposes of weaving is a stole more of a scarf or clothing? I've worn stoles but never woven one and I think it should be a pretty dense sett. But since I plan on interfacing it, I'm not sure how that works.
4. The pattern I have chosen has diamond shapes. I was taught that diamonds should have 45 degree angles. However, this lesson was for a scarf. For this stole, I have meticulously checked this with a post-it note. But I now I can't decide if the angle changes for a denser weave. I've confused myself. Help?
5. I have assumed that for the diamond pattern the sett should equal the ppi. Is this correct? I think this answers question #4.
I've thought too much about this and am beginning to feel like I'm chasing my tail. I am also afraid that the answers involved a lot of math. I'm afraid I might swoon (math, 100+ degree heat and disappearing posts could have that effect on me).
