Fibonacci Crochet Scarf







To make this winter crochet scarf I am using the Fibonacci Sequence. I used it to make the lighter colored sections. The section of the sequence I am using is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 then I go in reverse...5, 3, 2, 1, 1. I am using the lighter yarn for those rows. I'm doing 8 rows in between each of those “sequences” in Dark Brown. It's all written out below the pattern further down.


***To see a video on how to do the Seed stitch please go here***

If you're not familiar with the Fibonacci Sequence the first two Fibonacci numbers are 0 and 1, the next number is the sum of the previous two and so on. So the numbers are 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21, 34,55,89,144 etc....

Chain 21
Hook Size: K
Completed Rows: 112
Size: Adult or Childrens
Final Size: 58 inches by 7.5 inches

Yarns: Impeccable Loops and Threads
         “True Taupe”; “Heather”, 1 Skein each
 
Abbreviations:
SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet

Seed Stitch Pattern
Multiple of 2 + 1 is needed
(10 x 2= 20 +1 = chain of 21)

Row 2: chain 1, turn… Skip 1st stitch, *1SC and 1DC in next stitch, skip 1 stitch* repeat across the row

  1. This is great! I want to try it using only a couple of rows, maybe red, between the Fibonacci numbers and see if I could get up to 21.

    How about one made of a string of golden rectangles? Nobody would know what the heck it was unless the wearer told them, ,thereby appearing to be a huge nerd.

    Anyway, thanks for posting this. It's an excellent idea.
