Re-Knitting the Public Domain: an Open Source Snowflake Hat

Documentation for an Open Source Hardware project I developed as part of my ‘Year of Open Source‘ project (an attempt to live as open source as possible for a year, exploring different areas of open hardware, open education, free culture and free software). Inspired by the collaborative hacking of these old Brother machines, and seeing Fabienne’s amazing knitting projects (see the earlier interview I did with her) I wanted to make myself an open source hat, building on work in the commons. This video documents the process, and the writeup and ‘source code’ for the hat are all here: Snowflake Hat.
