Fibonacci Golden Spiral Shawl
  0 customer reviews

Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers that begin with 0 and 1 and continue with the next number as a sum of the previous two - ex: 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, and so on to infinity. This sequence is commonly used in computer algorithms, but more interestingly, appears in many forms in nature - from spiral galaxies to nautilus shells.

The Fibonacci Golden Spiral Shawl is part of my “SCIENCE IS BEAUTIFUL” series. The Fibonacci sequence is often used in color knitting, but this shawl uses the sequence to create the golden spiral shape through lace increases. You will notice the Fibonacci numbers running all through the pattern, from the stitch count, to the number of increases, to the number of stitches knit or purled straight. This produces a very unique shawl shape that has one side straight and the other very flouncy and flirty. It can be worn many different ways.
