This scarf has a unique, one-off mathematically generated pattern that is knit into it, made from purple 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 purple yarn is a bit hard to photograph, but it is a bright purple, in high contrast to the white yarn. The model is wearing a different scarf with a different rule, but in the same colors and dimensions as this scarf. The photos without the model are of the exact scarf you will receive.
This is a seconds quality item, as it had a flaw that was fixed by hand at the end of the scarf. The area with the repaired flaw is shown in the last two close up pictures. 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. Please note that we can't estimate how long this item will take to get through customs for orders outside of the USA. Get cozy in this generative knit!
