Kniterate aims to enable people to have garments custom-knitted to perfectly fit them. The knitting machine operates utilizing user-friendly software that assists people in making their own designs from scratch, or by using pre-made designs or templates to help give them ideas. All the user needs to do is decide which design elements to mix-and-match to create their knitwear. Clients can even upload their own designs into the software if they want Kniterate to recreate it.

What can you make with Kniterate? Practically any knitted garment from beanies to scarves to cardigans to sweaters to shoes to baby clothes. And how does it work exactly? Users simply create their own design on the program and then Kniterate, with hundreds of computer-controlled needles and loop patterns, will knit the garment. Once you receive your item, you can wear and share it, as Kniterate encourages its clients to share the designs with the Kniterate community.

Right now, Rubio and his team are working on a web-based app and the brand is already accepting orders via their Kickstarter campaign.
