Product details

Ammonites are fossilized sea creatures, the forefathers of the Nautilus. They are formed like ram's horns, named after the Egyptian god Amon whose animal was the ram. Once, ammonites roamed the seven seas, all bright and fearsome. Now, all we have are some dull colored stones. This is your opportunity to give them back their sparkle!

For the mathematically inclined: Each section is build up according to the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ...). As the Fibonacci sequence is a model for natural growth, the ammonites look rather realistic.

There are two versions given in the pattern: For a fast-growing ammonite and for a slow-growing one. Tentacles are optional.

The ammonite is worked in Tunisian crochet, with short rows. These stitches are based on the Tunisian Simple Stitch. They are also known as linked stitches. All new terminology is explained in the pattern. The pattern comes with picture tutorials for all stitches and techniques used.
