All-central = www. All-outboard = mmm.

A 4-square puck weaver in standard position with points labelled.
A more self-explanatory terminology for vertices that are mmm or www, is all-outboard and all-central.

We wish to end our weaving at an all-outboard vertex (formerly mmm) so we can tuck it closed like the flaps of a box.

When finished, an all-outboard vertex naturally looks tidy because no unit weavers come to an end at its folds. An all-central vertex will look messy if the ends of unit weavers are visible, as in the photo above.
