This year, instead of donating finished shawls, we helped out a group of fourth graders on a big project. The team Mom was truly clever. She used old blue jeans as the canvas then had each child add a felted creation on the canvas. My guess is that they did well with the bidding.
Many of these kids didn’t know what fiber was. Some have made felted pumpkins with me. This was truly a great gift to them because now they see new possibilities.
FIBONACCI SCARF 101
“The Fibonacci Sequence of Numbers can enliven your Knitted and Crochet Items, giving an interesting look with relatively little effort.” Posted by Lesley Arnold-Hopkins
To put it simply…Knit a scarf without stabbing anyone due to boredom. I actually looked forward to my 32 rows of one color just to get to my stripes. I alternated between odds and evens just for my end-of-project sanity. You can either have a lot of ends to weave in or a just a couple.
Start with 1 Row of Color B
0 + 1 = 1 row of Color A
1 + 1 = 2 rows of Color B
1 + 2 = 3 rows of Color A
2 + 3 = 5 rows of Color B
and so on….
