Welcome to knitwork—a modern network of knowledge about machine knitting! Here you'll find helpful explanations, graphics, and example code to aid in your understanding of machine knitting, as well as documentation on relevant tools for generating code to program automated knitting machines.

Knitwork and the software detailed on this site were created by the Carnegie Mellon Textiles Lab (with considerable contributions from Gabrielle Ohlson).

If you have any questions or suggestions, please post them on the knit.work GitHub issues page. (for any type of feedback, not just issues!)

Visit the Textiles Lab GitHub page to check out our software.
