JCB Knitting

JCB Knitting is a simple concept, but probably quite difficult and requiring great co-ordinated skill to achieve the desired result.

All that is required are two JCBs with the usual back-hoe buckets being substituted by a pair of very large knitting needles. A spool of heavy duty cable acts as the raw material.

The two machines park beside each other, and in a carefully choreographed action begin knitting, their operators using the cable to follow a standard pattern.

The emerging garment is only suitable to hang up somewhere in the form of a piece of sculpture, as even an elephant would be incapable of wearing it.

In an ideal situation, the pattern would result in the creation of a knitted version of large replica JCB.
