The Knitting Package

2013. Graphic Design

Graphical encryption method using knitting patterns to decrypt strings of code.

This project was inspired by Tim Maly’s curious analogy between weaving and programming. According to Maly, “programming has always been women’s work […] weaving is deeply embedded in code.” Designed in LaTeX, the Knitting Package encryption method feeds back into this notion by decoding encrypted text into knitting patterns for alphabetic letters.
