Berry Pi – Winter Shawl KAL

Are you ready for my 2017 Pi Shawl KAL? We are starting a little later than usual this year because I have had a big deadline on another project and because I wanted to get the kits together! Official Start Date February 14, 2017 Berry Pi is a pi-shawl in two sizes: Regular and Deep Dish. It’s worked with very meshy double-yarn over patterns set off in solid areas of stockinette stitch for a strong, bold statement. Made in sport-weight alpaca, it’s warm even though it’s got so much openwork. Berry Pi Pattern on Ravelry. Coupon: BERRYPI2017 On sale for $5 until the KAL begins. Berry Pi Kits on Craftsy.
