Shake The Disease

The Name

Shake The Disease by Depeche Mode

Chose for the viral texture the yarn creates.

The Shawl

Dimensions: 32 (wingspan) x 14 (depth) inches (approximate)

An experimental pattern that worked! Worked in stockinette stitch.

The Yarn

Obtained from the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers knitting guild – somehow – or was it from CANanaCat? Anyway, the previous owner had decided to double-strand a yarn – most likely labeled bulky on the label.

From my prior yarn store experience, I believe this yarn might be very old King Cole Opium: 54% Cotton, 42% Premium Acrylic, 4% Polymide.  Between 198 Lilac and 3046 Wisteria, I am going with the latter.

This project reminded me of an alligator or crocodile; hence the name: Crocodile Rock by Elton John.
