1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89…
The Fibonacci Series is a fascinating mathematical development. It has intrigued me since a friend introduced me to it in college. The Fibonacci Sequence is a series of numbers that builds on itself. Starting with 1, each number is added to the number before it to create the next number in the sequence. So 1+nothing=1; 1+1=2; 2+1=3; 3+2=5, etc.
Why am I geeking out about numbers? I assure you, this is not my normal MO. I want to make a blanket based on the Fibonacci Series. You see, the series is not just about numbers. If you translate those numbers into squares you come up with this:
And if you draw a diagonal line across each square you get pretty darn close to the Golden Spiral (which is another geeky mathematical equation).
So my blanket will end up looking like this:
And here is the first square!
I’m such a nerd.
