I've not tried inkle weaving, but our Spanish teacher does it as a hobby
and brought her loom in when my class was doing their weavings. My
Down's student was fascinated (she LOVED weaving, and was quite
proficient) and picked up on it right away. Here are some resources you
might look for:

The Off-Loom Weaving Book, Naumann and Hull, 1973 (probably out of
print, but check used book stores or; I found my copy at a
used bookstore)
Inkle Weaving, Bress, 1990
Inkle Loom Weaving, Holland, 1973

The SCA's Web site might have some info; I found some great links to
card weaving there.
