Introducing Fibonerdy!

I’m a nerd… it’s not really a secret. Fibonerdy is an example of my soft spots for terrible puns, color, and interesting math concepts. Available now on Ravelry for $6.00USD (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fibonerdy)

It’s a Fibonacci-inspired crescent shawl, where the colors march along in a compelling 13-8-5-3-2-1 sequence. There is no short row shaping, and the versatile shape can be worn as a shawl, a cache-coeur wrap, or a generous scarf.

(This is cache-couer style; wrap in front and tie in the small of your back.)

This shawl is an exaggerated crescent worked in garter stitch from the nape outwards. The shape is the result of its long tab beginning, occasional increases at the center, and regular increases at each side. There is also a dropped yarn over at the edge to make sure it is soft and elastic.

Pattern calls for two skeins of fingering weight yarn; I used two skeins of Cephalopod Yarn’s Skinny Bugga – MC – Montauk Monster; CC – Leafy Sea Dragon. 75% of my MC and 93% of my CC were knit up in the sample shown; the edge is easily adjusted to be worked longer or shorter in alternate colors.  Again, available now on Ravelry for $6.00USD (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fibonerdy)

(By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0 and 1, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. So, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc… I did take some small liberties, for the sake of design!)
