PI--E Day!

Let's celebrate PI--E Day with this crochet wrap! 


The design is from Margo Bauman (AKA flyingflower)
The texture changes from raised to flat with each successive digit of Pi (3.141592653589793238). 

A fun asymmetrically symmetrical wrap - or is it symmetrically asymmetrical?
The texture changes from raised to flat with each successive digit of Pi (3.14159…).
Math geek or not, it is a fun piece to make and wear.
Uses Tunisian Simple Stitch and Tunisian Reverse Stitch
Solid color looks great, too!
Why celebrate PI Day?  Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.
For me, I think I'll have an Apple PIE!
