In Pixel, Patch and Pattern, two worlds collide: the vibrant coolness of digital typography and the decelerating craft of knitting. Rüdiger Schlömer takes you step by step into the world of letter knitting. With sample alphabets, for which he translates fonts from well-known type designers, Schlömer lays the foundation for your typographic expression with needle and thread. Threads become lines and modules grid. Typographic knitting is not a new craft trend, but a graphic approach to a crafting technique that holds in most of us a slumber, from which it just wants to be awakened.

For digital designers, who also want to do something analogue—and knitwear in the spell of letters.
With writings by Andrea Tinnes, Zuzana Licko, Christian Schmalohr, Typotheque, Nouvelle Noire, Fidel Peugeot, Pieter van Rosmalen and many others who have never seen your typedesign so “knit table.”

With tricks and practical tips from more than ten years knitting experience and countless examples by Rüdiger Schlömer and his knitting supporters.
