Random Squares Pattern Generator

(Note the scrollbar directly here on the right, use it e.g. to reach the save buttons.
The page can get long and I couldn’t adjust the length dynamically.)


 


Frequently asked questions:

  • Question: What about property rights?
    Answer:
    I thought that I make it easy ;-)
    You may

    • let generate as many random squares patterns as you like,
    • adapt and vary the patterns and
    • create from the original or your patterns what takes your fancy;
    • sell the produced items and
    • I don’t mind if you link to this site or
    • give credit to unikatissima ;)
    • not sell random squares patterns created with my random squares patterns generator!
    • not embed my random squares patterns generator into your site and
    • not claim the patterns as your own.

     

  • Question: What can I do with these patterns apart from filet crochet and cross stitch?
    Answer:
    Such patterns can be used to work with many techniques, check my entry about what you can do with filet crochet and cross stitch patterns;

     
  • Frage: What’s this with the ‘speed up the pattern generation’?
    Antwort:
    If you let generate many big patterns it can happen that your computer gets slower, that depends on technical conditions that I couldn’t consider while programming.
    Best if you reload this whole page from time to time.
    This is mostly done with the browser menu commands ‘View’ => ‘Refresh’ or similar.
     
     
  • Question: The saving of an overview or a pattern takes sometimes a lot of time! Why?
    Answer:
    The answer has two parts:

    • On the one hand the time that the random squares pattern generator needs to save a chart depends on the size of the graphic.
    • In case that you’re still using the Flash Player 9 everything works but the saving process takes longer than with the Flash Player 10.
      If you want to update your Flash Player you can do this directly at Adobe.
      If you don’t know which version you are using you can let display the version at Adobe, too.

     

  • Question: My friend can let generate larger random squares patterns than I can. Why?
    Answer:
    This depends on your Flash Player version, version 9 oder 10. The Flash Player 10 can generate larger random squares patterns.
    If you want to update your Flash Player you can do this directly at Adobe.
    If you don’t know which version you are using you can let display the version at Adobe, too.
     
     
  • Frage: What are the overviews and patterns for? And why do they have such strange names?
    Antwort:
    unikatissima Random Square Generator unikatissima Random Square Generator The overview is the small picture, the pattern the larger one that you can use to work in different techniques.
    I like to let generate different random squares patterns and found, that I can’t see from the actual patterns whether I like them. Therefore I always compare the overviews and print then the random squares patterns with the same name identification code, e.g. is the overview called ‘unikatissima_RS_15_7kD_OV.png’ (OV = overview) and the pattern ‘unikatissima_RS_15_7kD_PT.png’ (PT = pattern).
    If I only need the quarter pattern (e.g. when I want to work in rounds) I’m printing the overview ‘unikatissima_RS_15_7kD_OVQ.png’ (OVQ = overview quarter) and the pattern ‘unikatissima_RS_15_7kD_PTQ.png’ (PTQ = pattern quarter).
    I never actually print the border (‘unikatissima_RS_15_7kD_OVB.png’ (OVB = overview border)) and the repeated pattern (‘unikatissima_RS_15_7kD_OVR.png’ (OVR = overview repeated pattern)), but they can help you to find out whether you really like the random squares pattern, because the pattern repeated in one or both directions looks often very different from the single one.
     
     
  • Frage: Can I get back the last pattern?
    Antwort:
    No. Every time that you click on ‘create (new) pattern’ everything that has been seen before is removed or overwritten.
    Hypothetically speaking the last pattern could be generated a second time if you let generate enough patterns, but this hasn’t happen to me not yet although I have let generate thousands of patterns already.
    So save everything immediately if you like it! :))

    Credits:
    Just as for the last programs and generators I want to thank RIAmore.com.
    Left alone it would have taken me ‘foreverer’ to realize the random squares pattern generator.
    And I presumably would have despaired on it ;-))

     


    Completed patterns:
    While working on my random squares pattern generator of course I generated looots of mazes – and most of them I found beautiful enough to save.
    I give here some of them for your use. Simply click them with the right mouse button and select ‘Save image as…’ (or something like that).
    I suggest strongly to save the overviews as well!
    Please note that you accept my copyright terms by saving/downloading the pictures.

    Please keep in mind that your items can look quite different if the unit represented by a square isn’t square!
    A unit could be a stitch, a bead or a knot and so on. See also the entry ‘What Can You Do With Filet Crochet/Cross Stitch Embroidery Charts?’.

    I’m giving here ‘only’ one pattern with a width of 15 squares and two with a width of 25 squares, bigger ones would be beyond the bounds of this page.
    And additionally they all look simply stunning (well, nearly all anyway), I can’t present so many ;-)

    Brilliant! Thank you so much for this resource. I love filet although I’ve only used it for crochet thus far. I must explore the other uses for these patterns.

    You’re welcome :))

    “I must explore the other uses for these patterns.”
    Please do this, I’m looking forward to seeing the results ;-)

    I’m pretty sure this is my new favorite anything ever, and I’m going to waste away and be homeless because all I want to do is play with it and plot the many things I can do with these gorgeous designs, haha. Thank you SO MUCH! :-D

    Spookiwaffles, I’m sitting here with a broooad grin!
    And I must say that I reacted in the same way, being nearly homeless myself now but playing around the whole day ;-))

    Thanks a lot for sharing:) I love it so much.
