Loominous

In the process of learning how to weave using a rigid heddle loom, I became fascinated by the patterns formed by the intricate weaving system which includes threading, treadling, tieup and color variations. The best way to explore the patterns I think is to create a FUN tool and write the algorithm myself :) Checkout the online tool: yuinchien.com/projects/loominous.
Key functionalities:
  • Create custom weaving patterns with simple toggle selections for threading, treadling and tieup
  • Create color swatches and apply to warps & wefts(vert & hori yarns)
  • Browser localStorage support for saving changes
  • Some pattern presets to start exploring
Special thanks to Sara R. for coming up with the fun name. X.
