I thought other crafty Gransnetters might appreciate this (link below). I have always said to my family when I'm knitting a tricky pattern "Quiet please I'm doing maths". (I was crap at maths at school, got left behind in class).
Grannyknot there's things in the article I've never heard of, let alone wondered how they're formed or what they explain Thanks all the same but I've decided I don't need to chuck something out of my memory bank in order to make room for maths concepts
When I was doing my maths teaching PGCE we all had to do an assignment on maths in everyday life, or in subjects where non-mathematicians might not expect to find it. Mine was on the mathematics of Scottish dancing.
So, yeah, the maths of knitting and crochet, absolutely!
