    Crochet Verson Of Pi Shawl

    I have admired knitted Pi shawls for a long time, and have finally started one, but I was wondering, is there a crochet version? I understand the maths of the knitted version – double the stitches as you double the rows – but what would be the crochet equivalent? Crochet stitches are usually taller than knitted stitches, so just doubling up would not work, would it? Or am I over-thinking this, which would not be a first for me! I am looking for general instructions that I can adapt, rather than a specific pattern. Any ideas?

    Fiber spider has a tutorial on Youtube called The Pi Shawl Crochet Tutorial! This may get you on the right path

      Thank you, I will have a look. (Sorry for not saying thank you before, I am in a different time zone.)

    Just wondering if you found the help you needed.
    I am researching the idea of creating a Pi Shawl.
    They are so lovely. Well...the pictures are. I have yet to see one in the wild.

      No, not really. There only seems to be one video on YouTube about the crochet version, the Fiber Spider one, but that doesn’t really explain the maths of it. There are varying numbers of increases in between the main stitches, not just doubling up, which fits that particular pattern but would not necessarily fit another one, e.g. with clusters rather than v-stitches. He also mentions that the work can curl up or flare out, which says to me either not enough stitches or too many. I know that blocking, like charity, covers a multitude of sins, but it is not really what I am looking for.

      I think it is going to be a case of experiment and make a lot of notes, but I have to finish my knitted version first – it is for my great-nephew who will be born in the summer whether the shawl is here or not!

    WeeBizzom I too have admired these but alas, am not a knitter. I've not found a good resource for converting although this site has some good ideas on ways to start. I've also had some success using a shorter extended stitch to get my gauge. I agree with you, it's going to be adventuresome experimentation (in my mind, the best kind!). Please post pics if you get it done, I'd love to see it!

      Thank you, that looks interesting. I hadn't thought of starting with a knitting pattern, but that is a good idea. Some maths ahead!
