Product details

The idea behind pi knitting is to evenly space the increases properly, so that your circular knitting will lie flat. This is more tricky than it sounds. If you increase too fast, your knitting will distort the design. If you increase too slowly, your knitting will pucker. | Zimmerman's pi increase formula achieves flat circular knitting. It uses exponential growth (every increase row you double the stitches, and to match that the number of rows between increase rows doubles) but it takes full advantage of the fact that knitting stitches are so malleable. | “They are simply numbers and cannot thus be right or wrong [...]. What I trust that I am saying is that all numbers are by their nature correct. Well, except for Pi, of course. I can't be doing with Pi. Gives me a headache just thinking about it, going on and on and on and on and on....” - NEIL GAIMAN | ENJOY | Belinda |
