Fibonacci Hat ~ Jim
This Fibonacci Hat is so cool, Okay, seriously, we all must admit that! It looks amazing in any color combo; as long as you stick to the system. You can Google the origins of the Fibonacci system, but for those that don’t want to or are just too lazy to search it out…
In short, the Fibonacci numbers are the numbers in an integer sequence and characterized by the fact that every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones. According to Wikipedia…The Fibonacci sequence.
I designed this hat, as the name implies, for my husband Jim. After Jim chose his colors I got busy knitting up his hat using the Fibonacci number system. When it was finished I shared a photo of the finished hat on Facebook. I soon received quite a few messages asking me for the pattern…Voila ~
Jim was camera shy so my brother Bill stepped in. Bill is wearing the Adult size hat.
A color chart along with the written instructions are provided in the pattern. I also provide a link to my video tutorial instructing how I knit the increase needed for a couple of the sizes; Make 1 knit. No worries… This hat knits up very quickly and is fun!
