A novel algorithmic method for weaving design is presented, inspired by the recently discovered AA Fractals. The method is capable of producing a weaving pattern from any binary sequence or pair of sequences. All generated patterns can be woven in the simplest (4-shaft) dobby looms. An algorithm for generating input binary sequences is also presented, and the sequences produced by this algorithm generate patterns which resemble AA Patterns.
