Weaving the crosses ahead one allows for less friction on the weave and a much easier instillation.By weaving ahead you get this window and instead of going up and over strings you can go just a fraction of the distance,especially when combined with snake weaving it really helps.Make sure you don't let go of the end and you'll shave a few minutes on even a 20-30 min job.The reason I prelace the mains on a two piece is so I don'y pull as much string and I knot pretty efficiently.Eventually you'll get to the point where you really don't need to be watching yourself weave and you can tell by feel.Also a last minute visual check can spot the misweaves if you look at a 45 degree angle of the mains low to the frame and you'll see a bowing pattern and misweaves look really big.
