Sundayy 16th February 2pm to 5pm at Purlescence HQ, Newbury

Kate Atherley, Designer, tech editor, tutor and expert knitter is bring her expertise to Purlescence for three of her workshops.

The PI Shawl

This PI is much more about circles than it is about cheese and onion!

A PI Shawl, as defined by Elizabeth Zimmerman, is a circular shawl which starts at the centre, has absolutely no pattern, and only six shaping rounds in the whole thing. A half Pi shawl is worked using the same process but may be a little less daunting.

A traditional circular shawl is shaped through fairly complex geometry, but a Pi Shawl simplifies this and this workshop will completely de-mystify the process and show you how to create without having to worry about the maths at all.

You’ll understand how it works, how to create your own or customise an existing pattern. Including techniques for the start, edgings, cast offs and blocking. The class will provide patterns for two full Pi shawls and 2 half Pi shawls, as well as a template for designing your own.

You’ll leave the class having started your very own PI shawl.

Kate's classes are intractive, relaxed, and friendly. This is definately not a class to be missed.
