Kniterate: The Digital Knitting Machine

Memo to everyone who knits. You may be losing your job. 

I just saw a new invention on Kickstarter that is a compact, consumer version of an industrial knitting machine. People who love to knit will be able to turn digital designs into knitted garments.

Called Kniterate, the invention can make scarves, beanies, ties, dresses, sweaters, etc. in just a few hours. 

Dress designed by Jinhee Park. Knitting time 5 hours on the Kniterate.

Step 1: Create your design from scratch or using a template  

Step 2: Let Kniterate knit it for you, ready to be worn or assembled 

Step 3: Wear your own unique knits, gift or sell them to others  

Step 4: Share them online with the Kniterate community

Kniterate will not he available till next year. If you want to donate to their Kickstarter campaign, click here.

  1. I don’t think this is entirely a new idea. Like Leslie Alter, I’ve known about them for some time. I haven’t knitted since I did a patch for a quilt in Grade Four (pretty bad)! So I may become a knitter yet!
