fibonacci knitting

When you use the Fibonacci sequence to determine the number of rows to knit of different colors of yarn, in a scarf, etc., do you go in sequence? exam: 2, 3, 5, 8, 13,etc, and back down ie: 13, 8, 5, 3, 2, 1, or do you jump around randomly and choose any number, in any order that you desire, in the sequence ?

RE: fibonacci knitting

I suppose you could jump around, but to me that defeats the purpose of using the numbers in the sequence in the first place. I personally would probably knit in sequence to maybe 13 or 21, then work back down and up again as needed to get the length I was after.
