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.
