00060 Fibonacci's Great Grandmother

Some designs really take their sweet time - I had the first idea for this shawl in 2014 while working on my Betty’s Faroese Shawl. I hope that - just like me - you think all the waiting time was worth it, though!

Fibonacci’s Great Grandmother is a crescent shaped shawl in two colors that are arranged in stripes following the Fibonacci sequence.

The garter stitch body lets the beautiful border, Great Grandmother Edging from one of Barbara Walker’s treasuries, shine. It’s perfect for snuggling into and feeling hugged by your (great) grandmother whenever you need to feel their love.

Many thanks to my tech editor Michelle Hazell and my testknitter iowaknitter. Any remaining mistakes are mine.
