Demonstrate the math concept with this cozy striped scarf. It is hand knit of Brown Sheep Company Lambs Pride, an 85% wool, 15% mohair blend, in white and dark green stripes. Lambs Pride is soft and dense and warm: it has been my cold weather go-to yarn for decades (per my experience, it wears very well, but you do need to be careful not to machine wash it: it felts easily).

The fibonacci numbers are demonstrated by the proportions of the stripes, and by the number of garter bumps (knitter's jargon for the raised lines going across the scarf) in each stripe.

There are many math people in my family, most of them teachers. These scarves are in homage to them. If you aren't a math person, you can just take advantage of the visually pleasing proportions of fibonacci numbers.

This scarf is about 56 inches long by about 6 inches wide.

The scarf is handknit of wool and mohair, and I strongly recommend that you hand wash in lukewarm water with a gentle detergent (or baby shampoo) and (squeeze in a towel if you like) and dry flat.

Knit by me in my smoke-free, pet-free home.
