This workshop style class will teach you the basics of circular shawls, this being a Pi shawl.

“Make it simple. For many knitters, this shawl has been an introduction to lace knitting and to the knitting of circular things. And a good choice it is. The lace patterns are not too difficult, and the circle’s shaping is simpler yet. But all can be even simpler.”
-Elizabeth Zimmermann

Yardage is not listed, weight is given as follows:
“9 oz fingering- (or 12oz sport-) weight Shetland wool”

From the Knitter’s Almanac (July) book:

Summary: A circular shawl based the geometry of Pi–the relationship between a circle’s circumference and its radius containing six shaping rounds.
