The knit bike

The word knit is derived from knot and ultimately from the Old English cnyttan, to knot. One of the earliest known examples of knitting was cotton socks with color patterns, found in Egypt at the end of the first millennium AD. Originally a male-only occupation, the first knitting trade guild was started in Paris in 1527. Like quilting, spinning, and needlepoint, knitting is today mainly a leisure activity.
