This tool will help you generate a pattern for an inkle loom. This tool is limited to a plain-weave, meaning that threads on the inkle loom alternate passing through the heddles. No special techniques are required to lift or drop individual threads during the weaving process.To begin, enter the total number of threads in your weave. This is usually determined by the desired width of the finished piece, and the thickness of the yarn or thread that you're using. If you like, you can start with a rough estimate, and update the number as you develop your pattern.
Select a color from the palatte below, then click on a thread in the swatch to set the thread color.

With a color selected, click on a thread to color it. To pick up a color that you have used before, clear your color selection, and then click on a colored thread.
Each box below represents one thread on your loom. This is a plain weave, so every other thread will go through the heddles.
