Hack the Knit - overview and troubleshoot

In the 80’s and 90’s electronic domestic knitting machines were popular. These machines stopped being produced in 1996. Yet they are still being used with their 1980’s and 90’s technologies in contemporary textile design & schools, they are the best semi industrial way to prototype knitted fabrics. Some particular types of knitting machines can be hacked enabling you to knit a digital image.
Together with textile designer Claire Williams we will look at the different hacks, for example the Ayab hack, in this open workshop .
