Tectonic is inspired by that: Tectonic plates that meet and rub up against each other – causing all sorts of untold chaos above.
This shawl uses simple intarsia and color blocking to give you a shawl that has a dual nature – giving you a different shawl depending on how you wear it! It’s a quick, fun knit that is sure to keep you entertained and colorful!
