Obsessio from Nelkin Designs is an ethereal lacy cowl meant to be worn draped over the shoulders or wrapped around the neck. Obessio starts with a provisional cast on, and is worked in one long rectangle. The two ends of the rectangle are then grafted together to create the cowl shaping. The stitch pattern combines a modified feather and fan with FAT cables on each outer edge. Pattern includes options for three different places that beads can be incorporated into the cowl. You can choose to do either one, two, or all three of them!
