Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (the Greek letter “p”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. This cowl is a circle made into a circle with stripes sized according to the digits of Pi. A nerd’s delight!
