10 Patterns.
Various Categories.
They are numbered, feel free to remove the ones you don't want.

Pattern Number - Category - Number of recolorable Palettes
Pattern 18 - Themed - 2
Pattern 19 - Themed - 3
Pattern 20 - Themed - 2
Pattern 21 - Geometric - 2
Pattern 22 - Themed - 2
Pattern 23 - Themed - 2
Pattern 24 - Themed - 2
Pattern 25 - Themed - 2
Pattern 26 - Themed - 2
Pattern 27 - Abstract - 2

Default - Exactly how the patterns appear in game. Did NOT change the colors.
Custom - Changed the color Palettes in game, for an extra preview.

If you have any issues let me know, I haven't spotted any problems so far.
Pattern easily changes colors, and looks pretty good.

Install instructions here.

Thanks to Delphy for the Pattern Packager and HP for the wonderful tutorial.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

To install them manually (or the "easy" way), follow the instructions here: Sims 3 Game Help: Installing .package Files

Can't wait to use #23 in a rug, that will look so great. Thank you!
