EZ 100th Anniversary PI Shawl
I've got a lot of editing to do for this project! I added it as a pattern on Ravelry and I need to link to this page, so here goes. The pattern instructions can be found on Ravelry, search for the pattern called EZ 100th Anniversary PI Shawl. We also have a KAL thread started in the "10 Shawls in 2010" group. Join us!
The PDF with directions for the shawl in the photo, as well as preliminary directions for the next version that I've started (which will be similar but without the Gull Wings, it will be all hearts and vines), can be found here.
Elizabeth Zimmermann was born on August 9th, 1910 (8/9/10), so this year 2010 is the 100th anniversary of her birth. This shawl was designed as a tribute to EZ and a celebration of all she has done for us. It is based on her PI Shawl which can be found in her book Knitter’s Almanac. For this EZ 100th Anniversary PI Shawl, modifications have been applied so that the lace design stitch repeats and the number of rounds are multiples of 8, 9, and 10 (the numbers in her birthday).
Use any yarn weight and needle size that you like. You don’t have to use the stitch patterns provided here, you could unvent your own! Include any pattern that has stitch repeats of 8, 9, or 10.
