When I decided to make a spiral the science-y part of my Science Hat design, I was thinking of the ferns. (Also the snails.)
This spring has been a total mess here in Vancouver – way too rainy, way too cold. (I was also motivated to demand climate-change action when I designed that hat, to be clear.) And I feel like maybe the ferns have unfurled a bit later than usual (but I honestly have no idea about this at all).
But unfurled they have! Which I discovered the other day while walking through the woods.
Here's how you can keep spirals around you all the time by crocheting them in two colours.
