Crafting with Crochet As Open Source Hardware (OSHW)

Hackspace Magazine Issue#40
I published a tutorial piece in Hackspace magazine (part of RaspberryPi Foundation) to get into the hacker mindset of my research while experimenting with the boundaries of what counts as Open Source Hardware using crochet.

A Resistor Cushion is a pin/needle cushion but for colour-coded resistors. The cushion has been certified as Open Source Hardware (OSHW) under the CERN Open Hardware License (CERN-OHL-1.2) and the documentation is licensed under the Creative Commons Attributions (CC-BY-4.0) license.

The published tutorial can be accessed via this PDF.
