Weave Calculator is a specialized calculator designed for weavers.
This application makes it easy to:
Calculate how much warp and weft are needed given the width, length and sett of a project.
Estimate finished dimensions given dimensions on the loom and estimated shrinkage.
Calculate how wide and long a project you can make at a given sett with a known amount of yarn.
In other words, Weave Calculator means that if you encounter a yarn that screams weave me!, you can whip
out your phone and figure out if a project is feasible without worrying that you'll accidently divide when
you should multiply. If you are a handspinner trying to figure out how to get the most out of the yarn you
spun out of a fleece, you can experiment with different width, length, and sett choices and learn whether,
say, you can get two shawls plus decorative pillow or one nice sized throw.
Weave Calculator can work in either inches (and yards) or centimeters (and meters). You can switch at
will between the two. Any measurements already entered for a project will be converted automatically if
you choose to switch.
Weave Calculator lets you save a calculation and reload it later on. So you can evaluate some options
while you're riding a bus, then pull up the option later when you're at home with your loom.
Weave Calculator has been available for Windows Phone since March 2012. Version 1.0 is
an ad supported application. Version 1.1 due out in September 2016 will be free and contain no ads.
