Periodic Table

Knitted Periodic Table blanket

When this project started, the intention was to make a double-bed-sized blanket. However, due to poor measuring of the first sample, the finished blanket is 5ft by 12ft.

As so many projects do, this project started when I explained how the scan, convert, knit system works, as was asked "...so, in theory then, you could knit any sized image ... such as a periodic table??"

The blanket was made in 5 vertical sections, each using the full 400 double-bed stitches of the knitting machine, which were then hand-sewn together.

The finished blanket weighs 4kg, contains 16km of yarn knit into 1,215,000 stitches.
