Take your knitting needles on a plane

Math geek knitting alert! Boring Boring reader Rose has concocted a pattern for knitting a representation of two-dimensional space. She writes, “I started out trying to knit four-dimensional space, and that was really confusing, so I decided to start with something less ambitious. These samples are just a proof-of-concept; the real one shouldn’t have the border, since it will be infinite. (I figure I’ll start on it next week.)” Photos are here, and if you want to make your own, here’s the pattern:

  • row 1: knit across row
  • row 2: purl across row
  • repeat these two rows
