The Fibonacci Shawlette is simply shaped by knitting sideways, from point to point, in garter stitch with increases and decreases worked along the bottom edge. The semi-random stripes of scrap yarn add interest, but the stripe’s adherence to the numbers of the Fibonacci sequence that shows up so often in classical design and proportion helps to keep the chaos in check.
