The focus for this project was on knit sensors that responded to stretching motions. In research I made on this subject, many were made out of jersey knits. I wanted to use hand knitting as a way to incorporate the conductive material into the final product more seamlessly. The different samples I wanted to make includes varying the yarn thickness along with strands of conductive yarn. By altering these two variables, the changes of resistance can be recorded and be an important part of the reference sheet.

The materials I used for this project include various wool and acrylic yarns and conductive thread. The equipment I used were knitting needles of different sizes.
