A little math never hurt anybody! In this class we’ll learn the basic theory of a Pi Shawl inspired by Pythagoras and his math discovery of circles and applied by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Then we’ll put it into action! You’ll learn how to start the shawl and add finishing techniques using small samples of these two shawl shapes. Using either a full Pi or half Pi shawl, we’ll learn simple ways of making this simple shape our own. If time allows, we’ll start knitting and put the theories into practice.
Technique Requirements: must be able to knit, purl, work yarn overs and simple stitch patterns. More advanced students may incorporate lace into their projects if they choose.
