Knit Grotesk is a typeface by Rüdiger Schlömer specifically made for hand knitting. The typeface is the outcome of his investigations in typographic knitting. Knit Grotesk first characters were inspired by a low-res adaptation of Futura (FuturX by Laucke Siebein), while translating it into a hand-knitting pattern. Through this formatting process a whole set of typographic details emerged and evolved into a typeface of its own. The most characteristic element – the vertical line grid – derives from the alternating two-tone double rows used in slipstitch knitting. With the support of Anton Studer, Knit Grotesk has become a typeface, including a basic set of accents and some alternative letters. The six cuts are the result of three weights combined with a vertical line grid (Stripe) and a blank background (Dot). All the cuts can be combined to create an infinite number of typographic experiences. Check out the dedicated website www.knitgrotesk.com.
