knitting is coding

sorry i don’t make the rules

@ox there is much truth here. Some academic ppl theorize that weaving patterns are a type of code/ language, esp ones that convey family or clan info in the design. I've seen kids coding classes that use handweaving or crochet to make binary bracelets
It's so neat 😍


@glitterwitch @ox Knitting and crocheting have been used as a form of encryption in wartime, recording information in ways only another textile artist or someone clued-in would be able to read in a way that could be carried across the lines without drawing attention.
