Mathematical rules underlie the ancient art of knitting

Knitting may be an ancient manufacturing method, but one researcher believes that understanding how different stitch types determine shape and mechanical strength will be invaluable for designing materials for future technologies, and a more detailed understanding of the knitting 'code' could benefit manufacturers around the world. Researchers are delving through the surprisingly complex mathematics that underlies tangles of yarn.
