Did You Know?
Fractal: In mathematics, a fractal is a subset of Euclidean space for which…did your eyes glaze over there? Fractal: In the real world, fractals are all around us. They are found in nature, geometry and algebra, and we are using them in new and surprising ways to develop better medicine and technology.
How Does it Work?
These circular and semi-circular shawls use cables in a branching fractal to replicate the look of a computer cooling chip developed at Oregon State University, and while the shawl won’t prevent your computer from overheating, made in cotton or cotton blend it is an ideal transition piece from the hot days of summer to the cooler days of fall or from the cool days of spring to the warmth of summer. The two-stitch cables divide into more two stitch cables creating smaller images of themselves and are finished with a 3-stitch I-cord edge.
