Inkle Loom Plain-Weave Pattern Generator

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.

Number of Threads:

Hi Folks!
Just want to let you know that, thanks to some friendly user suggestions, the Pattern Generator now lets you save your designs, and upload saved designs so that you can keep working on them! Also, in the pattern, threads that go through the heddles are now marked with a dot. Enjoy!

I've expanded the thread count for now; I'll look into saving and retrieving files when I have more time.

What more can be said, what greater case can be made than this:  to find God, you must look with all your heart.  To remain present to God, you must remain present to your heart.  To hear His voice, you must listen with your heart.  To love Him, you must love with all your heart.  You cannot be the person God meant you to be, and you cannot live the life He meant you to live, unless you live from the heart.
