Overshot definition

In weaving overshot is a supplementary-weft structure with a plain weave ground cloth. The supplementary weft floats over an entire block, under an entire block, or over and under alternate ends in a block to form halftones. Since the pattern area is limited by float length (blocks cannot form pattern independently), overshot is not a unit weave. Each pattern pick is alternated with a plain weave/tabby pick to form the ground cloth.
