Knit Your Own Binary Scarf!

“Knitting may be a centuries-old craft, but the results can be quite high-tech. For example, it’s now possible to store data on a scarf. And the good news is, the construction is completely open source.”

This lady here is Christine Dumoulin, and she not only created this fabulous scarf (and wrote that witty introduction) but also shared the pattern on the magical interwebs!

I can’t knit, but it’s things like this that make me really wish I could. Once you get started the possibilities are endless, binary cardigans, binary baby clothes?

You can even go all out and hide secret messages in your binary wear like Craftster user Jaberwocky, who hid lines from the Tao Te Ching in their binary scarf!
