Download this pack of military camouflage patterns to create infinitely repeating camo backgrounds for your designs. Most of the camo patterns I found on the web either didn’t repeat as a tileable pattern, or were just made of unrealistic blobs, so I decided to have a go at creating my own camo pattern files and share them with you all. Access All Areas members gain instant access to 100s of premium design resources & source files. Excellent work here Chris, thanks for sharing these I’m sure I can put these to great use in the future! Thanks, I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of this (especially because my day job is at a war museum). I will elaborate on multiple ways to use these patterns in upcoming posts with both Illustrator and Photoshop, but for now, here are 5 seamless vector patterns for your designs. Formally trained at Oklahoma State, Jay Hilgert is a graphic and web designer, font designer (Link), software developer (Brush Pilotâ„¢), and the founder of BittBox. I received an overwhelming response to the Creating Custom Patterns and Hero Header Part I tutorials asking for a comprehensive tutorial on creating complex repeating patterns, especially the heavy damask style that I have such an obvious affinity for. There are a myriad of excellent resources and inspiration for repeating patterns online and anytime I’m creating something this complex I like to at least have a piece of reference material to get me started.
To get this swatch for yourself if you’re following along at home follow this link to reach the search page where I found my pattern.
Next lets press Command-J (PC: Ctrl-J) to duplicate the new layer and move the copy to where the next tile in this repeating pattern should go.
To keep things clean select all 4 pattern layers in the layers palette and press Command-E (PC: Ctrl-E) to merge the selected layers into a single layer. Press the A key to switch to the Path Selection tool and drag a selection around the whole path to select the entire thing.
With the whole path selected and the Path Selection tool still active hold down the Option (PC: Alt) key and click and drag the path to duplicate it. Because this core pattern repeats vertically with a slight overlap, I’m going to now select the entire complete path and duplicate it again (just like before), this time dragging it vertically down until it sits over the source pattern below, slightly overlapping the upper path.
Notice that to the right and left of the main pattern that the center portion of that pattern is repeated on each side. The path layout is now complete so lets switch back to the Layers palette and create a new layer by clicking the Create New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers palette or by using the keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-N (PC: Ctrl-Shift-N) and call the layer Pattern. Press the D key to reset the foreground color to black and then fill the layer with black by pressing Option-Delete (PC: Alt-Backspace).
You can now hide or delete the original pattern reference layer because we don’t need it anymore. Now scroll down and find that EXACT same point in the lower half of the pattern and place another guide there. With all my guides placed for the pattern I’ll often create a selection inside my guides of the pattern area, copy the selection and paste it into a large new document where I can duplicate the pasted tile and layout the repeating tiles to make sure everything lines up perfectly. By simply deleting the Vector Mask from my layer and adding copies of the smaller side elements to the top of the design back in my Paths layer in the Paths palette, and adding a new Vector Mask including the modified paths I easily remedied the problem.

We only want the black areas to be visible on in the pattern so hide the Background layer by clicking the eye icon next to it in the Layers palette and make sure the Pattern layer is selected as the active layer.

Hi Just4me if you have started with a magic circle (OR by chain 3 work number of stitches into 1st chain) you should be able to pull it tight to close. Hey I was working on this hat pattern for fun and I'm on row 13, and i just realized its not perfectly straight across the back, I thought it was suppose to be, it looks like it in the picture on the post.Is there a way to fix it, if I undo rows? YOU are slipping into the stich (Start your slip stitch the same way you would a single crochet -- insert your hook in the next stitch, or in the second chain from your hook -- and yarn over.
Each camouflage pattern is available in vector format so it can be used at any size imaginable, as well as a JPEG format for everyday use in Photoshop. These camo swatches are based on the popular patterns used by the US military during the 80s and 90s, as well as the more modern digital type pattern currently in use today. To use in Adobe Illustrator, just drag the graphic into the swatches palette, then add this swatch as a fill to any object. Repeat this another two times until you’ve created a space where you can see how the pattern is supposed to look on all sides.
We’ll be tracing the edges of our source pattern with the pen tool in a minute and since we obviously want our pattern to be perfectly symmetrical lets add a simple vertical guide. If we were to deselect our path and start a new work path at this point we would loose all that hard work which (speaking from experience) totally sucks.
Make sure that any parts of the pattern that are outside the guide on the left are inside the guide on the right. Press the M key to invoke the Rectangular Marquee tool and drag a selection inside our guided area.
You can now continue to Complex Repeating Patterns Part II where we’ll add color and texture to create a stunning and versatile repeating pattern.

You need to make sure each path (especially those that are supposed to add or subtract from other paths) have the right properties. If you ever have a path that you change the options of and nothing happens, try cutting (Ctrl-X) and then Pasting (Ctrl-V) the path from and then back into it’s position, this will clear up the issue.

It does not stop there, attached with the file come twelve 3-color swatches for you to experiment and explore color combinations. Any chance someone could please point me to a write-up of this "magic circle" thing? Also as your counting, when you reach the final count, it will look like you have room fir one more stitch but that space will close up when you join to the chain 3 to end that round. Beginning at the top of the pattern place an anchor point on the guide line and begin tracing the right (or left) side of the pattern. You will want to zoom in on one of the junction points as close as possible to make sure that the two paths meet perfectly at the center. Press the P key to switch to the Pen tool, Control-Click (PC: Right-Click) on the path and choose Create Vector Mask.
I show you this oversight to demonstrate how important it is to make this test file before going any further and how easy it is to miss small details in a complex pattern. If you choose Edit>Preset Manager and choose Patterns from the menu you will find your new pattern at the end of the list. This pattern can then be used along with the fill tool or the layer style options, such as Pattern Overlay. For those of you without a vector graphics editor, check out InkScape (free) or you can use the PNG provided with a transparent background. Once I found a pattern I thought would make a good starting point I copied the image and pasted it into a new Photoshop document. I chose the top of this point to make it easy to find the correlating point in the lower area.
You will find collections of my favourite go-to crochet patterns from baby crochet patterns to adult, crochet blankets, crochet hats, cardigans, booties, bonnets and amigurumi stuffed animals and dolls.
By continuing to do the first DC in the base of the chain 3, I have increased by 1 stitch on each row.
The edge of the hat has a raised bit where this extra stitch is going in so I'm not sure it is right.
