Any knitter or crocheter eventually does something with stripes. Whether it’s a scarf, hat, or cardigan, here are some fun stripe patterns to play with:
1. Harry Potter Stripes – Based off the movie scarves, either big thick rows or a pattern of (big thick block, small stripe, small stripe, small stripe).
2. Mirror Image Stripes – Have stripes get progressively smaller and then bigger again.
3. Birthday Stripes – For a person born on June 5th, 1982 the stripe sequence could be 6 rows, 5 rows, 1 row, 9 rows, 2 rows.
4. Math Stripes – Choose your favorite mathematical constant (pi, e, square root of 2) to determine your stripes. For example pi = 3.14159… so stripes would be 3 rows, 1 row, 4 rows, 1 row, 5 rows, 9 rows, …
5. Random Stripes – Use an online random number generator to determine your stripe pattern for you.
Cool idea! I love the Birthday stripes in particular (I think it’s missing an ‘8’ though?)
Another popular pattern for stripes is the absorption spectrum for your favorite element.
Ooh..must think of more chemistry based possibilities…
And that missing 8….I typed up this post before the morning cup of tea. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
