Mathematical Knitting

17th August 2018

Knit one, purl one, knit two together…it seems pretty mathematical already, doesn’t it? And for anyone who has tried complex lace knitting, it sometimes feels like it is about as easy to figure out as a quadratic equation. But there is a young lady who has taken mathematical knitting to the extreme.

Fabienne Serriere uses her computer programming skills to create unique knitted pieces. Worked on an industrial knitting machine, each piece comes with the source code used to create the pattern (in case you need it!).

She calls it ‘generative knitwear’. We call it amazing.

I don’t know about you, but I think I might go back to knit one, purl one and leave these unusual designs to those with the mathematical knowhow.
