Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl

Pattern Description:

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.

The scarf combines Mirasol Samp'a 100% Naturally Dyed Organic Cotton & Marks & Kattens Eco Bomull Skal International certified100% Eco-Cotton

The pattern includes written directions and a color wave chart.

Special Notes:
This alternating st st and reverse st st is worked on the right side only. Slide the stitches to the opposite end of the needle at the end of each row, so each row of the scarf is worked from the right side. Even though you are knitting flat, you will only knit from the Right Side!

This pattern is self-fringing, be sure to slide all sts to the beginning (rs) to start each row even when the same color is being used.

Use stitch markers to separate knit and purl sections.

Be sure to knot each new strand of yarn with last strand before the first and after the last sts.

Optional: to make the scarf wider add rows to the middle Color A section. Adding 3 rows will add 0.5"/ 1cm.

A gift received became a passion embraced...

While hospitalized for a long while, I sought an enjoyable distraction from the daily drudgery of medical tests. Having learned some basic knitting skills as a young girl from my talented Baba and very creative great grandmother, I decided to again try my hand at this craft. Knitting quickly became a passion as a single sweater accelerated into ...
