WHEELY COLOURFUL


There is nothing intrinsically mathematical about this design. The curves are created by the natural distortion of the knitting, not by any special calculations.


It is unusual because it has seven sections. Many circular designs consist of six or eight sections, allowing for symmetrical repetition of colours. As 7 is a prime number it is not possible to have any rotation patterns here.
