Xmas present 4 - the fibonacci scarf
Anyway, this is a 2 meter knitted scarf, which on Ravelry is known as the Pathfinder Fibonacci. Pathfinder, because the colours are as close to the ones we use for the LARP group as I could find, and Fibonacci because that's the pattern the rows are laid out in.
One ball of yarn worked out at about 55 rows (I know this because the first block is 55 rows, and I just had enough to do that), but after that the colours change every few rows.
Fibonacci sequence, which I thought everyone learned about in school, but judging by the number of people I've had to explain to, I'm beginning to think it was just my shitty school.
I had to turn the whole thing inside out in order to weave all the ends in, which was a challenge, and there are a couple of bits where I've switched colours and there are small gaps in it which I couldn't seal up as I was neatening it.
This comes in, according to Ravelry, at 996m of yarn from 9 balls. It's knitted in Debbie Bliss Rialto DK, and was knitted in the round on 4mm needles. It measures about 1.8m and is really squidgy and heavy.
I'd say I'm never doing one of these again, but I quite fancy my own, and I'm tempted to do one using Prime numbers.
(one of my nasty secrets is that I'm actually a maths geek, I just wasn't good enough at a-level to get anywhere with it)
