Waffle weave

I was reviewing a waffle weave pattern, used from the book "Simple Weaves"  by Bjork and Innell.   They comment that a like sided waffle weave has to be done on a countermarch loom, Since I have a jack type, I put the brakes on using their pattern.   Can anyone explain to me if some weaving patterns are specific to the type of loom you have?  What would happen if I set up my norwood with this pattern?  I have been weaving for a long time, but I only thought the number of shafts on my loom limited me to a pattern not the loom type.  

Thanks so much!
