Pattern Drafts







As I go along, some of my posts will include pattern drafts.
I've created this page to make the drafts easy to find.
Links to the drafts will be listed below.
Have fun browsing! If you use any of these yourself, I'd love to see photos.
You can e-mail me at iWeaveStraps@Gmail.com.

Since I make a considerable portion of my living selling original, one-of-a-kind guitar straps, I ask that you do not make exact copies of any of the straps shown here. When you use the patterns, change them up a bit to make them your own. 

In my Etsy shop here, you can purchase "Yarn & Pattern Packs" which have 4 skeins of Omega Sinfonia cotton yarn in coordinating colors along with a page of 12 patterns to use with them.

IN ALL PATTERN DRAFTS SHOWN HERE, CONSIDER THE TOP ROW TO BE HEDDLED THREADS AND THE BOTTOM ROW TO BE OPEN THREADS.

The graph paper which I've used to chart these patterns was created by Misty Wood and can be found here: http://flufdrax.deviantart.com/art/Inkle-offset-graph-74494166  This is the coolest thing in inkle design charts to come along to date, and I'm very grateful to her for it.
