Greek keys - 2 dimensional patterns

A Greek key is usually a border - a single line, possibly turning round a corner. This page attempts to make it into a two dimensional pattern.

Here is an automatic pattern generator. Choose Size, Design, Turns and Style to get a Greek key pattern. This is repeated. This will give the patterns lined up with each other. They can be more attractive if one line is offset from the next. Click on the arrows to move the lines.

Size:   Design:   Turns:   Style:   Move lines: Move left Move right

This generator sometimes gives extra white lines in patterns, but you can take them out if you wish. I have for some of the patterns below. These are coloured twice, once in a simple pattern and once to show the underlying design.
