The Amen Break Scarf

amen break beat scarf

This is a scarf I knitted based on a sample of the The Amen Break. I took an image of the waveform of the amen break and converted it into a knitting pattern, which I uploaded onto a hacked knitting machine. The knitting pattern repeats over and over the same way that the amen break sample gets looped in so many musical compositions.

Update: A bunch of people at Maker Faire asked if I was selling these, so if you feel like you’d like to have one, then you can explore those feelings further here.
