The Golden Ratio - Creating pleasing stripes Tip

Just found this interesting article
http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/tips/fibonaccistuff.htm
that explains mathematically how to get pleasing proportions in design - The Golden Ratio!

Think of how many things are designed on a 3:5 type ratio - buildings, paper etc.

The Golden Ratio is approx 1:1.62 so when thinking of stripes or patterns keep that in mind.

It's mathematically explained in the above article.
