An interesting look at some techniques for replicating 3D knitting in Cinema 4D from Pingo van der Brinkloev, who was inspired by some of the progress being made in creating super-realistic 3D knitting models in Stitch Mesh and similar research.

This video shows a simple approach to knitting with hair and mograph in Maxon’s Cinema4d

Using Cinema 4D’s Hair Module and Mograph, Pingo creates some astoundingly nice knitted patterns that can be used to create or wrap around objects or surfaces with a really nice looking knitted objects. Pingo does this by using the d_PolySize Effector (by douwe) to scale MoGraph clones that are being cloned onto a polygonal object based on the surface area of individual polygons.
