Subject: Re: array

I find it interesting that no one has responded to this post, so I
will.  As language arts teacher with math certification, I answer,
"Yes, in cases where the pattern is repetitive."  Some plaids,
however, are random--which makes an array impossible. Arrays must form
squares or rectangles. 

If you were to assign numerical value to stripes in a plaid such that
all stripes of the same width and color had the same value, those
stripes could repeat themselves in an array.  The directional
differences (horizontal/vertical) of the stripes operate in the same
ways as distribution of multiplicands.
