Electronic devices process information as binary digital logic signals that exist in two states, ON or OFF. This can be directly translated as 1 or 0, YES or NO, TRUE or FALSE, or magnetic ATTRACTION or REPULSION.
This information can just as conveniently be translated into knitting states such as KNIT or TUCK, TUCK or MISS.
The binary digits can be arranged in the form of a programme where they can be encoded and converted into symbols to compose, for example, a knitting design or a machine programme.
