Students realize their ideas in our Knit labs as shown above.
a. Students work on Passap hand knit
machines to create their own samples, exploring color and texture
in relation to knit structure.
b. The Shima system allows students
to design on the computer and feed that information directly to
the electronic flat bed machine which knits their creations.
c. Here the student designer explores
jersey patterns using one of our electronic samplers.
The following equipment is available to students.
