Strik:t aims to explore the theme of embedded storytelling by translating the emotional value of hand knitting into a digitally knitted fabric. The main focus is on surface textures and how traditional hand knitted structures can be utilised in digital knit development. With visual and contextual references to British island knitting, this project combines tradition with innovation to create a modern interpretation of classical, historical knitwear. The result is a technical library of swatches and further developed samples, which can be combined in multiple ways to create stories and promote an inquisitive relationship between garment and wearer.
