I am an avid crocheter, and enjoy combining it with my mathematical interests. The picture is of a trivet made with cotton thread. Notice that the first two rings in the pattern are solid, while the next has 2 segments, the fourth has 3, the fifth has 5 and following the Fibonacci sequence until the 12th ring which has 144 segments.

I have exhibited pieces at the Joint Math Meetings multiple times:

2012 in Boston

2013 in San Diego.

2016 in Seattle.

2018 in San Diego.

2019 in Baltimore.
