Final Banner Design

Nov 26 2013 · by Sam Meech

The data has been collated, and ordered and the final size of the banner worked out, to create the final design layout. It measures 1410 stitches x 1270 rows, plus hems on each side. This should equate to 4.5m x 2.7m, though scaling up my tension square to this degree my be a little hopeful. At best guess, I can say it will be massive.

Below is the final design, the design as formatted for IMG2track (to compensate for stitch ratio correction), and an image strip of all 221 weeks of data collected, that forms the pattern design. The file will be sent across to IMG2Track in 9 parts, each creating 2 tracks, which are then sent to the knitting machine.
