The round shape again! Did I infect you by now, with my obsession for the edgeless shapes? (if you hadn’t had that before) If not, I’m trying again today: look at the shape! It’s beautifully round, just like the mug that will be sitting on it!
Wanna know how I made these? Quick excursion before I tell you: are you familiar with the term “pi shawl”? It’s a circular shawl! Isn’t that perfect?The construction was invented by no one less than Elizabeth Zimmermann and I so wanna knit one. Not just any pi shawl, I want it to have some kind of peacock pattern, not sure yet how I will knit that up, but I’m going to find out. I was thinking about a brioche part (because I haven’t tried that yet). Any suggestions?
Pi shawl and circular coasters, what do they have in common? If you have knit a pi shawl you already know: it’s the same construction. The circular coaster is a mini pi shawl, you might say, so making the coasters, I practiced pi shawl knitting.
Let us know, if you have any questions!
