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:

I LOVE YOUR PATTERN GENERATOR. But when I print out the chart none of the squares are colored. Help Raine

Thanks for getting back to me Carolyn, and the new colour controls are an awesome addition. BIG THUMBS UP. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Oh as for the yarn I use for my dog collar, I use a Bamboo cotton mix which is 70% Bamboo, 30% cotton. It's 4ply it is so silky and shiny and my inkle loom loves it. I just have to attach a buckle and add holes and its ready.

AWESOME ADDITION TO PLAIN WEAVE PATTERN GENERATOR. This is really going to help me when working out my warp colours for a pattern. Cheers.
