I wasn't sure whether to put this link under Knitting or Science. It might appeal to mathematicians who also knit (or knitters who are interested in maths)

Someone like thatbags ?

I have done quite a bit of möbius knitting and have found it interesting.

There is math in everything if you want to look and counting daisy petals etc may be very interesting and educating. Nature has a way of putting numbers in everything from DNA upwards but living life is more fulfilling surely than contemplating it?

There is room for both. Seeing the underlying patterns is fascinating, like sunflower seeds and Fibonacci numbers]].
