It should be noted that this image is based off of the great book of the same name by Ian Stewart, so it's a disappointment that all of these errors popped up.

I gave up on trying to find the photo of the finished product. I took this and joined it into a möbius for my girly-girl math-loving niece. I chose the WAY wrong yarn, had never done double knitting, and overall under-estimated the level of effort. Still pretty darned happy with how it turned out!

The scarf was accompanied by this book as a Christmas present:

EDIT: 6 hours later, I've uploaded a NEW version of the pattern with a corrected cast on number of stitches and some typos that i swear I caught but apparently not. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/17-equations-mobius-scarf

THANK YOU for the gold, kind stranger!

I'm surprised OP posted this without mention the book: https://www.amazon.com/Pursuit-Equations-That-Changed-World/dp/0465085989

If a good read if you're a "fan" of math.

This is based off of a book I happen to be currently reading, surprised to see it hasn't been linked yet.
