I would love for everyone to share any free patterns for inkle or tablet weaving.
I only know of one, so more is always better. lol
Palmer Looms - simple inkle band patterns
Found another one.
Inkle instructions and patterns
arizona/handweaving.net is full of all sorts of patterns. If you go through to handweaving.net, there is a much better search engine and you can find all the inkle documents very easily.
www.handweaving.net/DAHome.aspx will get you through to the quicker search engine.
There is a lovely Celtic band pattern here:
and there are a couple of free patterns on the Handwoven website too as well as on Weavezine
My favourite free tablet weaving pattern directory is http://www.theloomybin.com/cw/libindex.html
It also has a free online programme to help you in learning to design your own patterns. You can find out if something will work within a couple of clicks, with no wasted warps.
I found this site very useful and it had a couple free pattern links on it
I just found this site while searching for another one I'd used and it kinda makes me wish my loom weren't already warped. So much to do :)
And here's the site I was looking for. My first pick-up pattern was the knot example given here.
maybe you are interested in some german pattern ( " Muster ") ressources. If you click to the red words you will find the patterns and there are mostly no german language knowings requiered.
If you have problems ask me to translate!
Thank you, Kristina, they are beautiful! I like the threaded-in colours most of all. On the Einzugsmuster charts, please translate:
HO = hinten oben, HU = hinten unten, VU = vorne unten, VO = vorne oben
I'm guessing these are the positions of the holes that are threaded according to the chart. Is this right?
HO = back top
HU = back bottom
VU = front bottom
VO = front top
you are right with your translation.
Have fun with weaving and show us!
Hi, I just joined this group, I've been using an inkle for a few years now and was getting bored with it so I surfed the web to find new patterns and found the pick up method. I've been trying it out for the last few days and I'm having a hard time figuring it all out. I was wondering if any of you can recommend a good book for me to learn from. The directions I've found on the internet are not the best. thanks for the help,Jesse

I am new here. I have just taken an inkle weaving workshop, and have been trying to find free patterns. I just can't seem to find that many. If anyone knows of some really good sites please let us know.
Just another link for free Inkle-Cardweaving Patterns. With Google -translation it will work :
great info, thanks so much. I am taking a cardweaving class at the middle TN fiber festival in May. I am so glad that I will be able to have so much available to me once I can understand what in the world it is talking about. LOL! I have woven for a number of years on a floor loom, and have just recently been interested in these other more ancient types of looms.
I've just found this inkle pattern generator.
I have posted a few here at Weavolution. Just search inkle or look for inkle projects. And, if you design original inkle weaving patterns, please share your patterns with us.
I have found a number of tablet designs on Deviant Art by one of their members. If you follow the link you can see stuff she has made as welll as being able to download many designs for free.Not too much instruction but a neat batch of how to weave runes!
I've been posting some of my inkle patterns here on my blog:
It is a lot of fun to see how others use and adapt them.
