There are few things as comfortable in the colder months as knit clothing. But unless you’ve got a lot of time on your hands or a very generous grandma, having custom fit knit gear is either very expensive or nearly impossible. Or it was, until the Kniterate digital knitting machine was invented.

Think of this machine kind of like a 3D printer, except instead of making objects, tools, or parts, it makes garments. The process is fairly simple: you can either design your own patterns to upload to the Kniterate app or choose from a number of pre-programmed designs, tweak the dimensions, and begin producing. Ok, so maybe that’s an oversimplification, but it’s still a whole lot quicker and more efficient than doing it by hand. The point is, whether you’re an individual or you own a clothing business, the Kniterate will allow you to create any variety of knit items with less waste, less time spent, and a greater opportunity for customization. This device will retail for $7,499 when it hits the market, but you can back their Kickstarter now to save some money. [Purchase]
