July Pi Shawl

Make that stunning skein of semi-solid yarn into something to treasure: based on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Pi Shawl, this elegant shawl incorporates all the increases into a few carefully placed plain rows between the lace-work.

 Worked entirely in the round, this circular shawl or wrap starts with just a very few stitches, and grows… and grows. The magic of Pi and of blocking ensures that the shawl is complete at any and all points, so stop when you think it’s big enough, or when your yarn is running low, and you’ll find you have a warm, comforting shoulder wrap.

Perfect under your winter coat, or as an extra layer in the office!
