Come cozy up your makerspace! This session will explore the links between knitting, coding and design thinking. Using a basic dishcloth pattern as a template, we will experiment with knits, purls, repeat blocks, and pattern design/adaptation (including a knitted scannable QR code). Knitting experience helpful, but not required.
