8/27/2018 I have updated the pattern so now with the purchase of More Pi you will get both the Pi Shawl/Blanket version and the Poncho Version. Thank you for all of your support and lovely comments on my patterns! Andee

ABOUT- MORE PI Shawl/Blanket
“More Pi” is a Pi Shawl Blanket. It is made out of DK weight yarn. It is intended to be used as a lap blanket or worn around your shoulders to keep you warm and cozy while sitting in your favorite chair. The entire blanket is worked in the round except for the knitted on edging. It starts on DPNs and then is worked on circular needles. The outer edging is worked as a knitted on edge. The pattern is worked mostly by charts, but there are a few written sections.

ABOUT- MORE PI Poncho
“More Pi Poncho” is a circular poncho. It is made out of DK weight yarn. The entire poncho is worked in the round except for the knitted on edging. It starts on 16” circular needles and then is worked on larger circular needles. The outer edging is worked as a knitted on edge. The pattern is worked mostly by charts, but there are a few written sections.

Please note that the picture above shows a slightly different version of the More Pi Poncho then how this pattern is written. This picture is of a version I made prior to the release of the More Pi shawl / blanket version. I modified the original pattern to make this pattern a more enjoyable knit. The main differences are: I removed the brown and white color work section by the neck and the color repeats changed slightly. I have included a picture of the More Pi pattern on page 2 of this pattern. That picture represents the actual color changes. The only difference with the More Pi shawl/blanket and the More Pi Poncho is that Chart “A” is worked as a 2x2 ribbed pattern for the neck hole. The rest of the pattern is worked the same.

MATERIALS
Amano Yarns Puna 100% baby alpaca DK (1 skein = 250 M/273 yards)
3- skeins Color “A” sample shown in color #4000 (maras white)
3- skeins Color “B” sample shown in color #4010 (inca ruins)

NEEDLES
US 5 / 3.75 mm DPNs (for cast on and knitted on edging)

US 7 / 4.5 mm 24” circular (for color work sections)
US 7 / 4.5 mm 32” circular (for color work sections)

I have listed three needle sizes for the circular options. You can knit the main portion of this with a 24” circular, but you may find it more comfortable to use a 32” circular. Please feel free to use whatever size circular needles work best for you.

SIZE
55” diameter

GAUGE
5 stitches = 1” in stockinette after blocking
7 rows = 1”

TOOLS
Crochet Hook (for cast on)
Tapestry needle
BOR- beginning of round marker
SM- stitch markers 24 (one unique color to indicate beginning of round)
T-pins & blocking wires for blocking (not necessary but recommended)

SKILL LEVEL
You must be able to read a chart, knit in a round and do color work. The cast on method is “Emily Ocker’s Circular Beginning”. If you are not familiar with this cast on method there are many great tutorials already published on YouTube. The edging is a knitted on edge, which is worked in garter stitch.
