Integration of Validation Modules into Knitting Software for Digital Representation of Traditional Costumes
Keywords:CAD systems, knitting software, XML, hand-made knitting, knitting pattern, digitalization, software applications
AbstractThis paper considers problems related to the development of knitting software for manual knitting. The support of error handling in knitting software is important for the users. The paper introduces an XML-based approach which allows recreating limitations due to the knitting technology. Each of them represents a Rule which contains certain conditions. One condition describes, allows or doesn’t allow combinations of stitches. The XML-based limitation scheme is developed for building on CAD systems for manual knitting. The users of such software applications could be: people who are interested in knitting as a hobby; editors of knitting hobby magazines; ethnographers who deal with the area of old traditional costumes and manual knitting.
