In Pixel, Patch und Pattern two worlds meet: the vibrating coolness of digital typography and the decelerating craft of knitting. Rüdiger Schlömer takes you step by step into the world of letter knitting. With pattern alphabets, for which he implements fonts by renowned type designers, Schlömer lays the foundation for your typographic expression with needle and yarn. Threads become lines and modules grid. Typographic knitting is not a new handicraft trend, but a graphic approach to a handicraft technique that in most of us has a sleeping beauty sleep, from which we simply want to wake it up.
