The films in the Knitting film series employ common systems of production to reflect issues of time and pattern, exploring analogies between artists’ film/animation and knitting. These films extend the notion that construction of the film/and or fabric can be reliant on programming, controls and human gestures outside of their respective conventions.

In ‘Knitting patterns’, single frame exposures of different coloured balls of wool have been made; the frames’ order within the film has been predetermined by a fair isle knitting pattern instruction (e.g. blue, blue, yellow, red, blue), this instructional graph we see at the beginning of the film.
