Application of XML-based Language for Digital Representation of Crochet Symbols
Keywords:Crochet Software, Knitting Software, CAD Systems, XML, Home Crafts, Digitalization, Computer-aided Design
AbstractThis paper views the problems related to the development of crochet software. It presents an extension of PKF - XML-based language for digital representation of crochet patterns. Its purpose is to develop a uniform and platform independent description of simple graphic primitives corresponding to different types of stitches. Due to the crochet symbols’ features the suggested format is particularly suitable for their description. Graphic primitives are described in vector format, character transformations are allowed, and there are possibilities for creating combinations of symbols, called clusters – major components in crochet diagram.The XML language can be built on crochet software.
