3DP Woven Texture

Happy accident.
  Printing a model using code sliced for 0.8mm with a 0.4mm nozzle produced this beautiful woven appearance. The overall texture is reminiscent of lace or wicker. The model was printed on
an Ultimaker 2 with a Bowden extruder which may be more forgiving of abuse by skipping steps rather than stripping the filament.

The challenge is to create this effect via an intentional process that is repeatable. Hopefully, without damaging the extruder motor.
