  • Patent number: 4346366
    Abstract: A computerized pattern generating system for producing a knit or a woven pattern has been found. Any desired pattern can be obtained without drafting a picture. The system has at least a digital memory and an arithmetic unit. On the digital memory, each color of a knit pattern corresponds to binary digital 00, 01, 10 or 11. Said digital information is automatically created by using the arithmetic unit, and is further modified according to the desired pattern. The pattern on the digital memory is applied to a fabric-making machine through a punched paper tape, a direct communication line, or any magnetic storage means.
