Tuti Weaving

A. Ahmed, O. Deussen

Abstract

We present a new idea for the algorithmic design of weaving patterns that is based on AA Outlines. The method takes advantage of their inherent property of having only a few distinct rows and columns. In contrast to a prior Bridges paper, we describe a new approach for extracting weaving patterns from AA Outlines, and we add colors of yarns as a design parameter. The resulting patterns can be non-periodic, are free of long floats, and can be woven in looms with only two shafts.
