Item details

Fractals have always fascinated me. They are a beautiful combination of mathematics and art. At its most basic level, a fractal is a pattern that looks similar at every level of magnification. The Dragon Curve Fractal is the fractal featured in the chapter headings for Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.

I designed this scarf to show off the lacy design of the Dragon Curve Fractal. It is a medium weight, double knit scarf that features the fractal repeated all along the length of the scarf. Contrasting yarns show off the design, especially if one of the yarns is a variegated yarn. The length of the scarf is customizable, depending on how many repeats of the charts are worked.

Required materials:
* Size 1 US (2.25mm) needles
* Approximately 250-300 yards each of two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn for a 52 inch (132 cm) length scarf. Length can be increased as directed using additional yarn.
* Tapestry needle to weave in ends.

NOTE: This listing is for a knitting PATTERN ONLY, not a finished product.

NOTE: Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique, but this is a fairly complicated pattern. If you are unfamiliar with the technique, you may want to try a simpler pattern first such as my Cattitude Scarf or Fire Dragon Scarf.
