In a technical sense, a glitch is the unexpected result of a malfunction, especially occurring in software, digital images or audio. I’ve achieved a similar glitch effect in knitting by randomising traditional stranded colourwork that I amplified by adding a marled aspect. The result is an unpredictable fabric; a unique glitch to every knitter.
