pdf pattern for Miss American Pi Shawl by Elizabeth Lovick

The patterns for this stole have been taken from Knitting Lace by Susanna E Lewis, published by Taunton Books. This book is a dictionary of the patterns in a 19th Century lace sampler in the Brooklyn Museum.

Pi shawls are based on the mathematical principle that the circumference of a circle doubles as the radius doubles. In knitting terms this means that if you knit a shawl where the number of rows doubles when the number of stitches doubles, you will end up with a circular shawl.
