Pattern editor had been modified a bit few days ago. This post aims to list the most visible improvements.
I’d like to share with you a question about the interface of the editor.
In plain mode, interface is easy. You click on an hexagon to change its color.
For pickup it’s a bit more complicated. In fact when you do a pickup, a thread that should be underneath goes above the band.
The post https://backstrapweaving.wordpress.com/tutorials/tutorial-a-yurt-band-border-in-two-color-warp-floats/ explains how to create a yurt band.
After reading some pages on https://backstrapweaving.wordpress.com/, I wanted to try backstrap weaving.
On the page aspinnerweaver.blogspot.com/p/resources.html, there is a link to a Norwegian Pick-up Bandweaving tutorial (norwegianpickupbandweaving.com/2015/05/12/pattern-design-basics/)
The new release of the loom pattern editor now allow you to create a pickup loom pattern.
For exemple, if the page http://aspinnerweaver.blogspot.com/2016/08/going-green.html has caught your eye, you can design a pattern like this to try a different color:
Click http://raktres.net/l/Kj to go to this pattern or go to http://raktres.net/seizenn/loom_weaving_editor.html to start a new project.
Some other features come with this version. You can discover them on the left panel and I will describe them on next post.
A small update of the inkle weaving pattern editor, mainly on the visual part of the screen.
The main updates are:
The tool also moved to the page http://www.raktres.net/seizenn/loom_weaving_editor.html but the old adress still works.
Hope you will enjoy.
