Math and Knitting - you can't escape it! So why not embrace it?! The Fibonacci Cowl Class is a 2-color, reversible cowl that can be worn as a loop, doubled as a cowl and also pulled up to be a hooded scarf. The pattern harmoniously blends two colors using the Fibonacci numbering sequence in the row count. Both colors fall into an attractive arrangement, found often in nature, starting with one color and ending with the second color. The reversible cowl is 8" wide x 60" in circumference. It can be worn as a loop, doubled at the neck or pulled up to form a hooded scarf. Two contrasting colors of Misti Alpaca, Baby Me Boo yarn are knit this project. It was knit with size 9 circular needles in a 24 inch length. The Fibonacci numbering sequence may also be applied to stitch patterns as well as color changes in the rounds. Have fun creating new designs using this numbering sequence. Just posted: A Treasury List on Etsy, featuring items using created using the Fibonacci sequence, including my pattern. Thanks, Claire. The buttercup and Thistle Pod version was knit with Cestari Floral Collection 100% Fine Merino Wool and the pattern row counts have been modified. I've included a second version in the pattern. The model is featuring the Fibonacci Cowl knit with Cascade, Longwood in two contrasting colors. It's very soft and gorgeous! Thank you!

Hi! I'm Diane L. Augustin and I am Yarn Happy - Bead Happy I teach knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet classes at several yarn shops and art centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/St. Croix Valley area. One of my passions is knitting and crocheting with beads. I also manage the daily activities and teach classes at ThunderWillow Community Arts in Hudson, WI. I have classes at Ramsay County and Hudson libraries, as well as through Hudson Community Education. I often conduct workshops and demonstrations at special events and festivals in the area. I have been teaching professionally for seven years. My background as a graphic artist in the publishing industry facilitates my ability to design, write, produce and publish my patterns. I am also the photographer. I continuously develop new designs, offering them as classes, with a focus on teaching techniques. I learned to knit continental or combination style at seven years old from my grandmother, who had to teach me in order to get her own knitting back from me! I live in western WI, just outside of Hudson, with my husband, Lance and the boss of the household, Thomas Edison, our stray kitty who came to stay. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy! I hope my designs will become your favorites. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy! My pattern was published in the newly released book, [North Shore Knits][2], produced by [Three Irish Girls][3]. The book is composed of patterns by local designers, inspired by the fantastic new color ways created by Three Irish Girls.
