Imagine an existence with three overlapping identical selves each having their own personality. This existence of corrupted selves glitch in a systematic manner along their varied paths; sometimes broken, sometimes straight. They are a recurring pattern, a lifeline with different timelines existing in their own unique way. With another, a fourth self, concealed deep inside.

Glitch is a scarf worked flat from one edge to the other, constructed with syncopated brioche using 4 colors. Each 2 colors are connected with Intarsia technique. It starts with the first color block, then other blocks are included with casting on stitches using Italian cast-on method. These blocks skew to the right in a repetitive pattern. Stitches are bound off using Italian bind-off technique in same order as cast on edge; first color block, second color block, then third color block.
