This shawl draws its inspiration from Elizabeth Zimmermann’s famous
pi-shawl—a shawl based on pi for its increases. (Don’t worry—no math needed for this one.)

Before beginning this project, you should already be comfortable using double-pointed needles, working with lightweight yarn, and understanding yarnovers. You need just a bit of patience!

Pattern bonus: We provide a check-off chart for each round to make it a breeze to keep track of where you are.

It makes a great take-along project—it’s easy, and, if you use a self-striping sock yarn, particularly fun to see grow.

Mix and match your yarn colors. Wear it open, or folded in half.

Skills taught in this pattern:
How to add a ruffle to an edge of live stitches.
How to do simple short rows. (This pattern does NOT use wrap-and-turn short rows.)

Really Clear Skill Rating:
Level 2: You’re becoming fairly independent with knitting. You are comfortable with knitting, purling, and perhaps a few basic stitch patterns. You might need an explanation for a technique here and there rather than having the entire pattern being step-by-step.
