Mathematical Blanket!

When I realised that I will need to take a blanket with me to hospital when I was expecting my son, I knew I would like to crochet it myself. I then starting searching for patterns and yarn for this special project. Dhruv was born in summer so I wanted a breathable blanket from a light weight yarn.

After hunting around a lot, I chose the Knitcraft Cotton Blend which is a mix of acrylic and cotton and had a really soft feel. My husband chose these colors and I feel they look perfect together.

For the pattern, I took inspiration from my mom who is a mathematician. The Fibonacci Sequence
is a series of number where the next number is a sum of the previous two numbers. So I changed the colors based on this sequence. 1,1,2,3,5,8 First color is 1 row, Second color is 1 row, Third color is 2 rows and so on.

We did use this in hospital and over the past year we have been using it all the time. Dhruv does get over heated too easily so we have been using this blanket in all seasons. It helped us through till end of Autumn and in the Winter months we used another one. More on that in another post.
