The Science of Pi


Have you ever wondered how a Pi shawl works? Want to try your hand at a design of your very own? Join Kristina for 3 - 3 hour sessions to understand the math and design a Pi shawl that is uniquely you. We'll discuss yarn, gauge, drape, graphing and finishing. You'll start with a concept and end with a shawl! 

Sunday, August 26, 1:00-4:00 PM

On this day we will talk about all that pesky math and make a plan. We'll look through stitch books and discuss how to design your overall shawl.  Bring a notebook, pen and your imagination. You do not need to bring yarn or needles just yet, often the yarn in your hand doesn't fit the design in your head.

Sunday, September 9, 1:00-4:00 PM

Part 2 has us swatching our various motifs and starting our patterns. Bring needles of various sizes to determine different drapes and gauges. If you have a yarn, bring that as well, if not, feel free to browse what the shop has to offer.  Bring a laptop or tablet if you have one, we'll be talking about graphs and how to make one. 

 Sunday October 7, 1:00-4:00 PM

The final Chapter! You've made the swatches, you've designed a shawl. Now we will talk borders and finishing. Knitted on borders mean no tight bind offs, which may be the best thing ever.  We'll talk about weaving in any pesky ends and just how to block one of these shawls so it's a perfect circle. Bring your project and all your notes!
