Raspberry Pi Shawl Pattern Published

I am delighted to announce that my very first pattern has been published today on Ravelry. The pattern is for a lovely circular shawl, designed using Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Pi Shawl principle, hence the name!

This is not a difficult pattern! I have written it to appeal to both beginners in knitted lace as well as experienced knitters. It has been tech-edited and tested by three test knitters, using both four-ply and lace yarns. My original shawl was knitted in Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal four-ply yarn, but any four-ply, sport or DK yarn could be used. It looks especially lovely in a long-colour-change yarn.

The price of the pattern is £3.50, and the entire proceeds from sales of the pattern will go to the JTen Village Project in Kenya, to help provide schooling for the orphans living there. You can read more about JTen on their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/JTenvillagehomes/
