Three variations on a simple theme--a shawlette/scarf and two shawls--all constructed with pi shaping that ends in a lace border. Easy to knit and addictive! Knit one in every color. Easy to adapt for different weights of yarn. Written instructions for all three are included in the pattern including a lace chart for the border.
I came up with the idea for the shawlette/scarf as a pattern for the goody bags at my knitting group's annual retreat. I paired the pattern with a ball of Knit Picks Palette yarn. Yes, it only takes 231 yards of fingering/sock weight yarn to knit it! The pictured shawlette was knit in Celestial Blue on size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles. This is a nice little wrap to throw around your shoulders to keep the chill off in air conditioned rooms or restaurants or over your winter coat for a flash of color.
I had so much fun knitting the scarf version that I decided to upsize it to a shawl. So came about version #2 that uses 630 yards of fingering/sock weight yarn. This is a very full shawl that comes down to my elbows. I used Knit Picks Palette in Golden Heather for the main body of the shawl and Sweet Potato for the lace border.
Then I wondered what would happen if I omitted the front edge increases. Thus came about version #3, an almost half circle shawl. I used 440 yards of rainbow merino yarn that I had spun some time back. It was waiting for the perfect project and this one was it! I love how it turned out!
