Unraveling Calendar

Craft & Design Yarncraft

Matt @ Make: Online found this calendar that marks the days by unraveling a knit with printing on it. The piece is by Patrick Frey. Even from the video it’s not quite clear how it operates: does a motor pull a certain amount of yarn down from the textile at the same time each day, or is it somehow unraveled slowly over the course of the day?
