Fibonacci Blanket


During the holidays last year, I treated myself to some beautiful cotton yarn with the goal of making a smaller sized blanket.  I wanted knitting that was portable so the idea was to knit long panels and then bring them together.  

I purchased Berroco cotton yarn in color ways Waterman (1685), Tiverton (1623), Gadwall (1608) and Bluffs (1600).


I cast on 68 stitches on a size 7 needle. To reduce rolling, the first few rows (and the last 3) are a KKP repeat. 

My goal is to switch colors following a Fibonacci series (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8) as measured in inches.  I started with the dark gray color for 8" then switched to the blue for 5".  As I started, I only roughly measured these larger sections - which means I'll need to count the rows so everything matches up.  But then I realized that every 6 rows = 1" so there will be more accuracy moving forward.


This project was good knitting during my daughter's hospital stay.  No goal for when I will finish - just relaxing stuff.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  1. Figuring out that 6 rows equals 1" will definitely simplify this for you moving forward. Sounds like you had just the thing to keep your hands busy in a stressful time.

  2. I really love the colors and the pattern you made up. It seems that it would be the perfect thing to knit while supporting your daughter during her hospital stay. Nice to know that 6 rows = an 1" - I always feel good when it is something that makes sense and can make the keeping track easier.
