What possibilities are created if you break this tradition?
Kniterature bridges the worlds of literature and generative art to create unique patterns, which can be used to craft tangible fashion.

Traditional knitting is a meditating thing to do. The amount of stitches is limited and patterns are repetitive. Ordinary knitwear is expected to have a uniform look.

At first the given text is broken down to it's pieces of sentences which are then analyzed regarding their parts of speech.
In the next step each p.o.s is transformed into symbols equal to knitting stitches.
The outcome is an individual knitting pattern, influenced and personalized by each authors lingo.

Kniterature is a project set up to combine traditional craft's and generative art, initiated by Max Kesslau and David Schwarzfeld.
