Cellular automaton rule 150 limited edition, scientific knit winter scarf, physics, biology, maths, computer science, Australian made

$60.00 AUD

LAST ONE!! I've run out of this yarn and prefer to experiment with new colours and patterns rather than reproduce old ones. So if you like this scarf, better jump in quick before it's gone for good 🙂

The perfect gift item for the geek or nerd in your life who loves technology, biology or science.

I made this pattern using a mathematical algorithm that mimics cell reproduction in 2D space. It begins at one end with starter cells 1, 19 and 41 alive and each successive row determines the living cells based on the previous row. This particular rule, known as Rule 150, produces a non-repeating pattern.

The silver and green colour combination has been popular with both men and women alike.

• 216cm long, 15cm wide
• Made from 100% high-quality Cashmilon Acrylic
• To clean use 40'c machine or hand wash warm rinse. Do not rub or hand-wring. Dry flat
• I can make these in other colours, just ask! 🙂

Cashmilon Acrylic is a man-made fibre with longer strands than wool, so it's less prone to pilling. I've tested the yarn in multiple washes and can attest to its warmth and durability.

I make scarves in my smoke free, pet free home. To knit them I resurrected a broken domestic knitting machine from the 1980's and hacked it to accept mathematical patterns from a modern day computer. Don't assume this scarf is quick work, though. While a knitting machine makes some things easier, I still have to work by hand from start to finish.

Please be aware I make these on demand so there may be a few days delay before I can ship to you. Ships from Melbourne, Australia.

If you're not completely satisfied with your purchase, I offer a 14-day money back guarantee. Return postage is at the buyer's expense.
