Supporting knitwear design using case-based reasoning

P. Richards, A. Ekárt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputConference publication


Knitwear design is a creative activity that is hard to automate using the computer. The production of the associated knitting pattern, however, is repetitive, time-consuming and error-prone, calling for automation. Our objectives are two-fold: To facilitate the design and to ease the burden of calculations and checks in pattern production. We conduct a feasibility study for applying case-based reasoning in knitwear design: We describe appropriate methods and show how they can be implemented.
