This Scarf Knitting Clock Automatically Knits A Scarf In 365 Days
The scarf knitting clockis a clock that will knit a new two-meter-long scarf every year, with one stitch added to the scarf for each hour of the day. The clock will knit a new two-meter-long scarf every year.
The scarf stitching clock was created by a Norwegian designer called Siren Elise Wilhelmsen in 2010 while finishing her degree at the University of Berlin. She seems to have just wished to indicate the time in the most luxurious manner possible, according to the creator.
Creating a clock that generates an infinite number of clocks every year will be the next phase. By doing so, we will be able to generate an exponential number of clocks every year, which will allow us to construct an infinite number of scarves every year.
The catastrophic scarf scarcity of 1987 will never be repeated in our lifetime.
Not only does the scar knitting machine clockknit a fresh new, lovely 2-meter-long scarf every year, but it also serves as a clock to display the current time. A scarf that sways back and forth in the wind may be thought of as a grandfather clock, except that there is no pendulum to swing with it.
In one year, this wall clock will manufacture a two-meter-long scarf — all by itself. Talk about putting a stitch in time, eh? The remarkable machine knits one stitch every half hour, so at the end of the day, it’s completed off another row. The point? To make time palpable, visible – and a little bit cuddly, too.
Norwegian woman Siren Elise Wilhelmsen is the smart clog behind the design, and if you ask her super-nicely, she could create one for you. Pop over to her website to see more of her wonderful things, including furniture, lamps, and a pair of salt and pepper shakers that serve as spinning tops.
"Time is manifested in physical objects; in things that grow, develop or extinguish. Time is an ever forward-moving force and I wanted to make a clock based on times true nature, more than the numbers we have attached to it"
-Siren Elise Wilhelmsen, owner of 365 Clock
After 365 days, the clock has transformed the previous year into a scarf measuring two meters in length. Now that the past may be carried forward into the future, the following year is lurking in a fresh spool of thread that has yet to be knitted together.
Initially displayed during the DMY design week in Berlin, the clock has since been shown in a number of locations around the world, including at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, the National Museum in Beijing, the MUDAC - design Museum Lausanne, and as part of the Vitra's show during the Stockholm furniture fair, among others.
The clock was designed by DMY. During the Salone del Mobile in Milan, it was recognized with awards such as the Frame magazine Student Award, the Time to Design New Talent Award, and the Design Reports Award, among others. The Grandfather Knitting Clock has become a permanent fixture in the reception area of the award-winning design hotel The Thief in Oslo, Norway, where it can be found in the lobby.
For the time being, the scarf knitting clock is just a concept, but you can see a functional model in the video on its website.
If you are a newbie knitter, you should start with a little scarf that is large enough to keep you warm but not so large that it takes an excessive amount of time to knit. You'll need to cast on 30 to 40 stitches for a nice-sized scarf if you're using worsted weight yarn and size 8 to 10 needles to knit it.
Knitting every day of the year As time passes, the clock weaves it together. With a knitted piece that is knitted continuously for one year at a time, scarf knitting clock presents the physical depiction of the passage of time as an active and real force.
