I've been looking for some cool weaving patterns online, but havent been able to find anything, and i'm in no finacial state to buy a book on it. I was hoping someone had some cool patterns for a 4 harness loom that goes further than basic tabbys and twills.
I need a weaving adventure! Grin

Well, I haven't woven in ~~ years (let's not even discuss how many that is!), I did a quick google search and found these sites which might be helpful: 

http://www.complex-weavers.org/libbooks.htm

http://knitting.about.com/library/blweavingpatterns.htm

http://www.leclerclooms.com/pattern.htm

http://www.weavescene.com/v1/ss1/asn48/asn48.html

http://www.handweaving.net/Login.aspx  (free registration required)

Also, check out used book stores and library sales--I have a few books either friends or I found that way. 
I believe the old (late 50s/early 60s) Good Housekeeping book of crafts has some weaving patterns in it, as well as crochet, knitting, tatting, sewing, etc.  The other old general craft book I think has weaving in it was a set on American crafts that was written by Rose Wilder Lane (who probably ghost wrote her mother's "Little House on the ..." books).  The set consists of one book with chapters on all the "American" crafts, and a boxed set of patterns/instructions.  I *think* it's by American Heritage.  Sorry, although I own both of these, neither of them are handy, so details are a little shaky.

good luck!

Try "A Handweaver's Pattern Book"  I own a copy, but I've seen it at my library, too, so maybe yours would have one.  It has hundreds of patterns for 4-harness looms.  That is how I entered the world of overshot patterns!!
