Pi Ripples Hat
Pi! I found inspiration for this hat while reading AARP, Feb/March 2015, p11, STAND BY FOR PIE “After a 100-year wait! March 14 offers math geeks - and pastry lovers – a once-in-a-century pleasure. On 3/14/15 at 9:26:53a.m. (and p.m.!) the date and time will reflect the first 10 digits of the mathematical constant pi (π). Many bakeries and pizza shops will have specials to make the day. Princeton University will hold an Albert Einstein look-alike contest.”
Pi Ripples Hat will start in the top with an I-cord, in honor of Albert Einstein, and work through (2)radius x pi to give the desired circumference. You’ll be creating a circular crown by making 10 increases every other round, then you’ll be ready for the 10 stitch repeats of the modified lace pattern Ripples, 400 Knitting Stitches, by Potter Craft, p205.
