Baby Bib & Burp Bib


Here is my second baby set. Used Sugar and Cream.

I am intrigued with color and used the
Fibonacci sequence on the bib (A mathematical concept called the Fibonacci sequence is an easy way to get an aesthetically pleasing striped pattern. Here's a portion of the sequence: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21,34, 55, 89 ..). The next project I won't use varigated yarn, I think solid colors would make a stronger impact.

Comments:
Beautiful, Bonnie. You'll have to explain Fibonacci to me further...
 
I'm intrigued: How and why does the Fibonacci sequence make striping?
 
Please explain the Fibonacci sequence. The bib and burp cloth look beautiful, the bright colors just pop.
 
If you would like to see Fibonacci in two directions, go here: http://www.woollythoughts.com/afghans/fibre.html

If you would like to see it in 6 directions, go here: http://www.woollythoughts.com/afghans/optic.html

I made a fibonnonci Noni bag once!

Very fun to make.
 
Well, blogger cut off the URL for the purse:

Danielle,

I knit one row in a color, then another one in a different color, then two, then three, then five, then eight, etc.

Here's how the fibonnonci sequence is generated:
0
1
0+1 = 1
1+1 = 2
2+1 = 3
2+3 = 5
3+5 = 8
and so on.

Wikipedia has a good description of how their generated:

Hey Bonnie,
Your idea for using the Fibonacci sequence for bib striping is a great one!
I was in the middle of a Fibonacci bib when I read your post. I just posted my bib in progress. Using contrasting colors does help the sequence/series stand out. Thanks.
 
That sounds really cool, but I think I'll leave that one to you "mathletes" out there. I mean that in a good way too, I've always been mathematically impaired. I envy those of you who just get it. Thanks for the info. Maybe sometime I will give it a try.
 
Ah, you use the numbers of the Fibonacci sequence for the numbers of stripes - it is visually appealing! Cool fact. I heart math.
