The science

Since we’re human, we share most of our DNA—but everyone is unique if you look in the right places. Many of the differences in our DNA do not impact things you’d notice, but they do make your genome special to you and can be used to make an artistic interpretation of your individuality.

Dot One takes a sample of positions in your genome and combines those genotypes into a pattern that is unique to you.


The unique pattern of your tartan is determined by your unique DNA. Trait info provided with your pattern includes traits with limited influence from genetics.


  • This product will not provide any medical information or a diagnosis.
  • Reported traits are for entertainment purposes only
  • Your DNA doesn’t determine or limit your ability to keep your neck warm and cozy.
  • Results are subject to change as more knitting is done.
