Seasons of Persephone is constructed using Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Pi formula and is available as both a circular and a half circle shawl.

More information on the history of the shawl and what inspired it is available in the blog post HERE.

Shawl is written for Nupps or Eyelets or Beads, if you bead, you will also need: A crochet hook small enough to fit through the beads and size 8/0 seed beads. Border: 400 beads for half circle, 750 for full circle. Chart B: 60 for half circle and 110 for full circle.

Yardage requirements will vary depending on gauge, the number of repeats of Chart D and if nupps are worked.

Gauge listed is for prototype shawl. You will probably need 600 to 1000 yards for a half circle and 1000 to 2000 for a full circle.

Prototype half circle shawl used 820 yards at 5 stitches per inch unblocked, with 6 repeats of Chart D and a nupped border.

A half circle shawl knit at 7 stitches per inch unblocked, with 7.5 repeats of Chart D and a beaded border took about 600 yards.
