Notes

software scripted generative design, knit on a hacked kh-930 very hands-on with double bed (every other stitch double bed jacquard backing) and double bed manual color changer.

184 wide, each preprocessed chunk 159 long. pixels reduced by scale of 4 (one 4x4 pixel becomes one 1x1 pixel). total width x length: 184 x 795 (5 chunks). total yarn weight (both colors) 671 grams.

reminds me of rule 106
http://atlas.wolfram.com/01/01/106/

based on Cymbiola vespertilio aka the bat volute sea snail, algorithm sp811f from The Algorithmic Beauty of Seashells.

second of a series. they are unique generative code art, no two are the same (not just the colors are different).
