I design at the intersection of style and organic with Puddles, my Great Dane, by my side in the mountains of North Carolina surrounded by God's majestic and inspiring creation. My eye for knitwear meets caring about health, people, and the environment with the goal of connecting with others through high quality knitting patterns that feature eco yarns!
I hope you derive as much enjoyment in working up my patterns as I have had in creating them! Today is a great day to knit :-)
2014 Pattern Update: The revamped pattern includes modeled pictures (yes, it only took 3 years to convince my dad to model the scarf he wears every fall and winter) as well as a new Fibonacci inspired color sequence. "Fibonacci Mirrored" is the original striping sequence. "Fibonacci Edge" is the new striping sequence. The tech edited pattern includes written directions and color changing charts.

The inspiration behind this scarf came from my love of math and the Fibonacci sequence. To make it more interesting, I ran the sequence horizontally as well as vertically. While at my last knitting social, I heard about the linen method and was eager to try it. However, having only heard the directions briefly, my adaption does not slip stitches for the weave look as that would interfere with the Fibonacci sequence. However, my goal was achieved in the use of the adapted linen method, that is, it created a self-fringing garment.
