The last of the Obsessive Knitting Disorder shawls.

1005 yds fingering or sport weight for the shawl
670 yds fingering or sport weight for the kerchief

Kerchief and Shawl measurements:

The Kerchief measures 27” down the back and 80” along the bottom edge, 62” along the top edge

The Shawl measures 27” down the back and 120” along the bottom edge, 80” along the top edge

Whereas “Compulsion” was a half Pi shawl worked in worsted weight for the coldest days of winter, and “Addiction” was a full Pi shawl worked in fingering weight for the heat of summer, “Obsession” is a 3 triangle shawl worked in heavy fingering or a light sport weight for the cooler days of Autumn… looks like we’ve pretty much covered the gamut this year!

Worked back and forth in ever growing triangles, “Obsession” is a great shawl to work on before the rush of the holiday season. The stitches flow smoothly one into another, a nice relaxing knit before the rush of the holidays!

Never worked a 3 triangle shawl before? You’re going to love it. The construction ensures the shawl stays on your shoulders and the 3 triangle shape means there’s no “finger” pointing down at your, er, well, butt!

Don’t want a 3 triangle shawl? Well you’re in luck then as directions are also given to work Obsession as a Kerchief!

So come join us over on Criminal Knits for this fun MKAL. The KAL will start on October 1st.
