This afghan came about because I had quite a bit of yarn left over after completing my slipstream afghan. I wanted to do something with random stripes, but I have a really hard time being random. I learned about something called the Fibonacci sequence, and decided to give it a try. Basically, it's 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, and on and on. I did it up through 8 (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8) for this pattern, using the colors in the same order all the way through - because I had 17 colors and only five colors in each pattern repeat, it made it so the colors were different sized stripes each time they were used. I think it really gave me that random look without having to be random at all, and I'll definitely use it on future projects. Hooray for math!
