Warm Fibonacci Crochet Scarf








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

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.


******

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
Odd number of chains needed
Used 21 chains


Pattern:
Row 1: do 1 SC in second chain from hook,* 1 DC in next chain, 1 SC in the next chain* Repeat across the row

Row 2: chain 1, turn… skip 1st stitch (normally you don't but for this pattern you have an "empty" stitch every other stitch), *1SC and 1DC in next stitch, skip 1 stitch*    repeat across the row.
When you have 2 stitches left skip 1 and 1sc and 1dc in the last stitch

Repeat row 2

Repeat row 2

  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.
