#giftalong2014 is in full swing and there are so many amazing designers participating this year. I would spotlight them all of I could, but there are over 11,000 eligible patterns this year, so instead I’ve decided to find participating designs within a theme and share them.
Today’s theme: All things Fibonacci!
In case you aren’t familiar with Fibonacci numbers, they are a sequence of numbers that begin with 0 and 1 and continue with the next number as a sum of the previous two – ex: 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, and so on to infinity. This sequence is commonly used in computer algorithms, but more interestingly, appears in many forms in nature – from spiral galaxies to nautilus shells.
As designers, we love Fibonacci because there are so many techniques you can apply it to – from color knitting to lace to textures! All the designs below are part of the Gift-A-Long sale period – use code giftalong2014 for 25% off through November 21, 2014 @ 11:59pm (EST)!
