This lists all the designs of Greek keys on this website. Choose size, turns and styles to get the full range.
The generators are listed at the bottom of this page.


Size:   Turns:   Style:

Double - the conventional Greek key or meander with double spirals

Double reversed - the same, going in the opposite direction

Double and bar - breaks up the meander with vertical bars, making S shapes

Double and square - replace the bar with a square

Double mirrored - alternate keys are mirrored, which makes the meander have dead-ends

Double mirrored and bars - does the same except alternate S shapes are mirrored

Double mirrored and bar - does the same with one bar rather than two

T shapes - compresses the mirror pattern, making T shapes

T shape and keys - one T shape has been separated, making keys

T shape, keys and bar - as above, with a bar between

T and U shape - this combines T and U shapes, although the meander looks odd!

Edge to edge - the generator touches both edges

Edge to edge and bar - separating edge to edge with a bar

Edge to edge U shapes - compressed edge to edge, making U shapes

Edge to edge T and U shapes - as above, but pulled apart, making T and U shapes

Edge to edge mirrored - same as above, but mirrored alternately

Edge to edge mirrored and bars - separating edge to edge mirrored with bars

Edge to edge mirrored and bar - separating edge to edge mirrored with one bar

Single - meander of single spirals rather than double

Single and bar - bars between the single spirals

Single T shape - compresses the mirror single, making T shapes

Single T shape and bar - T shapes separated by bars

Single flipped - single spirals, flipped alternately

Single flipped and bars - bars between the flipped single spirals

Single flipped and bar - one bar between the flipped single spirals

Single T shape flipped - flipping the alternate T shapes

Single T shape flipped - bars between the T shapes

Single T shape flipped - one bar between the T shapes

Single rotated - single spirals, rotated alternately

Single rotated and bars - bars between the rotated single spirals

Single rotated and bar - one bar between the rotated single spirals

Single rotated and bar 2 - bar in different position

Single mirrored - single spirals, mirrored alternately

Single mirrored and bars - bars between the mirrored single spirals

Single mirrored and bar - one bar between the mirrored single spirals

Single mirrored and bar 2 - bar in different position

Cross - double spirals meet, making a cross

Cross and square - - same, with squares between

Cross mirrored - same, but alternate crosses mirrored

Cross mirrored and square - same, with squares between

Turns:

Using the generators, you can find more patterns for yourself. You can reverse patterns, or flip them. You can replace any bar with a square (I haven't done many of these). You can work with three keys rather than two, which I haven't explored at all. And of course, you can produce as many turns as you want.
