University of Arizona hosts a great On-Line Digital Archive of Documents on Weaving and Related Topics.
More than 400 books, 4000 articles… it’s a wonderful collection. Ressources are mainly in english but also in french, german etc.
Hours of discovery and reading.
Some documents, patterns for example, are hosted by https://www.handweaving.net.
I didn’t used a bag for a long time and lost the strap. So I decided to weave a new one.
Here three examples of latvian patterns found on various pages and reproduced with seizenn pattern editor.
I had several questions about the control code needed to register a pattern.
So, here an example with a pattern from http://aspinnerweaver.blogspot.com/
When you save your pattern, you get a pop-up window like this one
The two needed codes are “H1” and “a856”
Then, go to the register page and type in the two codes like that :
Click “load”, you should get the second step with a preview of the pattern:
You add here a comment and choose if you want the pattern to be public or private (one day you will be able to change those value afterward).
Be sure your pattern is visible before going further.
When OK, click “register”:
If you abort the process before this third step you will have a line in the gallery, but no preview. If everything OK, you find your pattern in the gallery.
If you already created a pattern but not have the control code, send me a message.
And leave a comment if you need more help or if something goes wrong.
The pattern editor is design as an offline tool. You can save it on your computer and design your bands even if you are not connected to the internet. But then, it’s a bit difficult to share your pattern.
There is a new tool for those who have an account on the blog. If you save you pattern using the button on the left menu, you get a short link and a control code. You can then register your pattern on this page http://www.raktres.net/blog/seizenn-register-a-pattern/ (you can get it on the top menu “Inkle loom pattern editor”/”Register a pattern”).
During the registration procedure, you choose if you want to keep you pattern private or share it.
You then have acces to the public gallery and to your private gallery.
If you created a pattern few times ago, the tool didn’t gave you the control code. If you want to register such pattern, please leave me a comment with the short codes.
Registered users of this blog have now acces to a tool to compare two patterns side by side.
The new version is online with three improvements :
- dual color wrap
- keyboard shorcuts
- display parameters
First, the pattern editor was able to simulate plain wave. After I added a pickup capability. Now I’m trying to give you the ability to create double weave patterns. It would be suitable for bedouin design as you could see on this first test picture
Pattern editor had been modified a bit few days ago. This post aims to list the most visible improvements.
