Compare the tartan above to a tartan necktie sold at a highland festival, shown below

At the last highland festival at Stone Mountain, I asked some of the tartan experts about the variations in thread counts, such as the one noted above. The answer I got is that the necktie tartans, which I have used for the source of my thread counts, are "abbreviated" by the weavers so that the pattern will fit better onto a smaller work. This may be done when the cloth is to be used for other smaller work.
