    Will weaving ahead on the crosses too much produce a different stringbead then only weaving ahead once? I sometimes eave ahead several time(4-6) to save time and I don't think it will produce different results then only weaving ahead once. What is your 2 cents on this?

    Really, you don't need to weave more than 1 ahead. If you weave any more than that, you're taking away the reason for doing it in the first place--reducing the friction of pulling the crosses through. Initially, it may seem that you'd increase the overall tension of the stringbed, but if anything, you'll probably reduce it because of the increased friction you've created.

    I agree with Steve. Weaving one ahead gives you the advantage of decreased friction when pulling AND when weaving because of the natural stagger of the strings. Beyond one ahead isn't going to give you an advantage.
