Rule 90 Scarf #414, Elementary Cellular Automata Knit - second

Regular price $160.00

This scarf has a unique, one-off mathematically generated pattern that is knit into it, made from black and white merino. It is one possible output of Rule 90, one of the rules of the 1D CA called Elementary Cellular Automata. Rule 90 is related to a Sierpinski triangle in that it creates a Sierpinski triangle if started from a single pixel in the generating row (but this scarf has many pixels in the generating row). This scarf was programmed, industrially machine knit, and hand finished, all in Seattle, WA. The yarn used is a 100% merino wool, spun and dyed in the USA. Ships with source code in Processing for the exact pattern knit into the scarf. The models are wearing a different output of a different rule, not this exact scarf. The images without models are of the exact scarf you will receive.

This is a seconds quality item, as it had two flaws that were fixed by hand, in the middle of the scarf. The areas with the repaired flaws are shown in the last three close up picture. It is still a unique item as we never knit the same item twice, even when there are errors. This scarf is fully reversible, with the opposite colors on the back from the front. 7.5 inches wide by 75 inches long. Hand wash with wool wash or dry clean only. This is a finished item that is ready to ship. Get cozy in this generative knit!
