Sprang Cloth with 2/2 Holes Throughout

Collingwood's The Techniques of Sprang says that the simplest way to understand how holes are made in 2/2 språng interlinking is to make them all the way across.  So I did.

Two threads are passed over two threads, rather than one over one (1/1).  That's not all there is to it, there's a four row sequence I had to follow.  Didn't throw me off, not like knitting feather and fan did, probably because within one row the motion is the same all the way across.  I made one error about a third of the way down from the top.

The fabric stretches sideways considerably, more than the multiple twist interlinking I did last time.

I like the cloth's texture.  I wonder what it would look like in fine yarn.
