A short video I made on making heddles and warping the loom.

Heather Heroldt did a fine job of writing a tutorial on basic inkle weaving as well as one on horizontal bar pickups. Find them here as PDF's : http://www.heatherspages.net/inkle.html

From the Ashford  Wheels & Looms Website. This little booklet gives very clear instruction on setting up your inkle loom. Page 15 has a section on weaving letters written by myself.  http://www.ashford.co.nz/newsite/ltwil/book/28.html?page=1

The website of Eve the Just.
This site includes several links. You can read written directions with good diagrams on how to create simple patterns. It also has the best instructions on how to create pickup patterns, both written and in video form.
If you are interested in doing pickups, you should absolutely watch the video!



Charting Patterns

You can have hours of fun designing patterns in plain weave using the little design program on this website.

This blank page can be printed out so you can color in the design using markers or colored pencil. Or use it in MS Paint. It is the one I've used on this blog and am very grateful to Misty Wood for it!

For help with choosing colors, this is a nice simple formula from a fiber artist.

Play for days with this color wheel and color scheme generator!
If you look down at the bottom of the page, you will see a link to upload a photograph and have the generator pull the colors from it for you. Brilliant!


A Comparison of different inkle looms

Where to buy books, looms, yarn

Some of the things I use and recommend

Pickups and advanced patterning

www.backstrapweaving.wordpress.com
The blog of Laverne Waddington, who is an accomplished backstrap weaver. She has wonderful stories and photos of her travels and studies with indigenous weavers across the Americas. The site also includes many tutorials on all of the techniques she has learned. Many of her design techniques can be done on inkle looms.
This tutorial on simple warp floats is very nicely done. 
I highly recommend this one!

A video which I made demonstrating the "Greek Key" pattern using a horizontal bar background for pickup.

Heather Heroldt has written a great tutorial on how to create pickup patterns on the horizontal bar background. A printable PDF can be found here: http://www.heatherspages.net/uploads/6/7/2/6/6726652/beginning_alternating_pick_up_for_inkle.pdf

http://edythmiller.blogspot.com/2014/02/baltic-style-pickup-inkle-weaving.html
This blog post includes some pattern charts and her videos on how to use them are very clear!
I highly recommend this one for Baltic style pickups!

Heather Torgenrud's blog includes this very nice article on how to design pickup patterns using Norwegian motifs: http://norwegianpickupbandweaving.com/2015/05/12/pattern-design-basics/

A pdf  file:  LATVIAN BAND WEAVING USING LETTERING
by Anita Apinis-Herman  http://www.weavershand.com/aahlatvianinkle.pdf

http://www.gewebte-baender.de/galerie.html
The website of Anneliese Bläse
This website is written in German, but is worth the trip to see the photos of pickup bands.

Adding beads into the borders

Although she is demonstrating on a rigid heddle, this easily translates to an inkle loom and is how I have added beads to my inkle bands.

Making a Small Bag

Sara Lamb's blog is full of interesting things including this tutorial about how to construct a bag from inkle bands! She has since written a very beautiful instruction book about making small bags called "Small Treasures". Find it here: http://www.saralamb.com/

In Print

"Inkle Weaving" by Helene Bress
This has been the best overall inkle book, in my opinion. It covers many aspects of weaving on an inkle loom and is full of ideas and patterns.

"The Weaver's Inkle Pattern Directory: 400 Warp-Faced Weaves" by Anne Dixon, published in 2012.
It includes an amazing array of patterning techniques and inspirations, although very little on plain weave.  I have a few copies for sale here in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/listing/189614376/the-weavers-inkle-pattern-directory

Susan Foulkes has published several books on band weaving, all recommended.
"The Art of Simple Band Weaving - Colour and Pattern"
"Sami Band Weaving"
"Weaving Sami Bands"
"Woven Bands from Sweden"
You can find them all here: http://www.blurb.com/user/aeneid
Her blog is also very interesting: http://www.durhamweaver64.blogspot.co.uk/
