KnitYak: Custom mathematical knit scarves by Fabienne “fbz” Serriere @fbz

KnitYak: Custom mathematical knit scarves by Fabienne “fbz” Serriere — Kickstarter.

Mathematical scarves knit in luxurious merino. Algorithmically generated patterns, no two scarves are alike. Knit in Seattle, WA.

KnitYak makes custom provably unique knit scarves and other computationally fabulous knit items with mathematical algorithms.

Hi, I’m Fabienne, but you can call me fbz. I’m a passionate hand-knitter and mathematician who works with hardware and electronics. Four years ago I bought my first consumer knitting machine, modified it, and fell in love with knitting algorithmic computer generated designs. I tried to have a collection of unique pieces manufactured in a textile factory, but found that no one was producing one-off knitwear. Be a part of this project and help KnitYak purchase an industrial knitting machine and start a new kind of local on-demand textile industry.

We do not post many KickStarters, however – this is one we are 🙂 We’re a backer!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
