**Outside is 12 x 12 = 144**

with a plain row in between each increase crochet row.

Begin with 6 then make 12

Make 2x each of 12 loops, makes 24

1 plain row

Then crochet 1, crochet 2x in next loop, x 12 makes 36

1 plain row

Crochet 2, crochet 2x in next loop, times 12 makes 48

1plain row

Build up to 144 in same way....

12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, `108, 120, 132, 144. ......24 rows ETC.

Notice, dark yarn marks end of row. one stitch is white to begin new row due to shape of crochet loops. Click on images to enlarge them.

If you use 3 ply baby wool and contrasting colours you get a good model and not too costly if you want to make it really big, just continuing the algorithm as above

My model would have looked better if a strong colour had been used rather than the variegated green.

It is the same if you increase 6 times each row, ie 6, 12, 18, 21, 24, 30, 36, even up to 600 or 792 or 7920....!

It is Pattern to make a 12 sided polygon of any size

1 plain row between each increase row.

__This is the simplest.__

__6 sided polygon.__

__no plain rows between each row.__

__Just for fun I input up to 7920......__

__There is another Variation__where we begin with 12 sided polygon then make it to 24 sides polygon then 48 sides, then 96 sides....

half done , just needs working out widths to make it a flat circular shape......

__What is this about 7920__Thanks to an article by Anthony Morris in the June/July 2015 issue of Nexus Magazine, on pages 51 to 55, +. "The Numerical Universe", 7920 is featured as a number which turns up in the Universe in many ways. eg.

__the Diameter of the Earth is 7920 miles.__Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Giza Pyramid, etc.. See www.newunderstandings.com

Cover shows an ancient Australian Aboriginal Stonehenge; story is inside......

My interest is the Fibonacci Series. Is there any connection with 7920?

Indeed

**7920 = 144 x 55**

**Now I can make a new model of Ripples,**

**for we have an Equation**

**F(n) = 2F(n-2) + F(n-3)**

**so 7920 = (2 x 55) + 34, all x 55**

**or 7920 = (2 x 21) + 13, all x 144.**

**I have made 2 Diagrams which describe**

**the Pattern we use to crochet from 144 onwards....**

to be added asap...

This is what it looks like:- = to be continued....

The last green row is 288; enough done;

diagrams now posted 31/1 are to describe imaginary ripples.

The next increase would be 432 then 720, etc......

****************************************

What is this? A"vortex" up to 7920 circumference, sides 7920.

We made a model in Dec 2015, dark green crochet, to 72 stitches.

This is 110 times bigger; just for fun; an imaginary form.

Nature might make shapes like this..........
