    It looks like it might be a 'dogtooth check', but that may be a trem that is only used in the UK.

    I am pretty sure 2esday is right. I've always known it as houndstooth, but to-may-to/to-mah-to right?

    Houndstooth is definitely the name. I have scarves, a coat, not to mention I grew up with houndstooth. Houndstooth is not a New pattern. I grew up with houndstooth (I think it came Out either in the 60's or 70's) Uh oh, I guess I'm telling my age! I hope this confirms it for you.
