Rent or design to order
My daughter is a young hobbyist designer (12) and is really interested in the Kniterate but it's way out of her price range. She has intermediate skills in knitting, crochet and sewing.
Does anyone offer time to rent on a Kniterate or is there a knit on demand service for one piece quantity Kniterate designs? We would certainly be able to learn the Design App. Open to any and all ideas. Thanks! We are located in the Charlotte NC, USA area.
I'm currently developing an app to do just this - allow people to order one off knitted pieces which they can customise. I was originally developing this for my kniterate (due to arrive 2020) but with all the delays I've now developed it to work with industrial manufacturing partners. We are planning to launch a live version of the app in October so if you're interested I can definitely send you some more details - we are currently UK based but can ship internationally.
Not sure if anyone with a kniterate has another solution for you though!
All the best,
Thanks Jeni. Yes please let me know as your app progresses. I would love to find a Kniterate solution as well in the future. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi we may be able to help - drop us a message To info @ ecoknitware.com. What knit of knit is your daughter looking to make? If it’s simple jaquard non shaped garments we may be able to sort something for you :)
Jeni, we would also be interested in hearing more about your knit on demand service as could be useful for us as well for more complex designs so would love to know more.

Hi jeni - how is the app development going. - would love to find out more0
Hey Robert, I've sent you an email!
Joel, I'll fire you an email too when our demo is ready!
Hi Jeni Allison - I've been toying around with an idea like that myself - I'd be happy to pitch in if you need any software development help or anything like that. Feel free to email me at email@example.com
Otherwise, good luck - that sounds exciting!
Hi Kyle Valade and Joel Gouker
The app, Custom Loop is now live as a working prototype alongside a knitwear exhibition at Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh - more info here - https://dovecotstudios.com/news/dovecot-knitwear-pop-up
You can also design a scarf / blanket via the app through my website - its a little bit of clunky set up just now whilst we continue testing:
Kyle Valade I've got a software developer on board but I'll keep that in mind, thank you! The app is licensable so these examples are for my brand, but we also looking to white label the app to other brands and organisations.
All the best,
Hi Jeni - Looking good and congratulations on this :):)
Do you have any idea on the licence costs for the app to run on a site, and what would this include - Just the app, and if so what is the output from the app - or does the licence include the knitted garment as well - If so, what are the details on this - timelines for production, yarn choices etc?
