"Stochastic" [stuh-kas-tik] is nerdy statistics lingo for random. Knitting is normally very orderly and predictable - quite un-stochastic. But on a recent backpacking trip, it occurred to me to design a pattern that could emulate the chaotic beauty of nature. Trees in a forest, ripples on a lake, snowflakes ...
And the way to do that is not so much by designing a pattern as by not designing a pattern.
So, for this project, chance will guide your scarf gradually from plain stockinette stitch to a field of flowers. Rolling a die to determine your pattern, every single person's creation will be unique!
