Sett at Selvedge: slightly tighter or more open?

Sally O

If you have a choice for sley order at the selvedge, which would you choose for a 20/2 warp, set at 36 epi in a 12 dent reed/3 per dent?

- 4 per dent in a single dent (to beef up the edge)
- 2 per dent, for the last 2 dents (to spread out slightly)

The selvedge threading is nothing special - just a continuation of the normal border pattern for a tied weave/float weave structure. Due to the total number of warp threads, I cannot begin/end the piece cleanly with 3 per dent.

Thoughts appreciated!
