Cellular Automaton in Philosopher's Wool

This design is entirely the work of Debbie New. Many years ago she designed and knit the first of these in our chunky weight wool, and as a cardigan. It is featured in her book "Unexpected Knitting" and in her card of this work.(see here) We loved the simplicity of Debbie's one paragraph description, and the fact that mutations can happen and would create your own unique pattern.. Debbie would like to add that you can make this sweater with a random start row to make an assymetric, one of a kind sweater, and no one would ever know if you had make any mistakes. Thank you Debbie! Our pullover has been knit in Rainbow colors on black. It is as striking as any rainbow would be at mid-night.
