Eclecticity is an asymmetrical triangular shawl, knit flat from the left tip to the right edge. Its eclectic combination of richly textured stitch patterns is inspired by my love of architecture and background in cabinetry design.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.

Eclecticity is designed for dk weight yarn, however pattern is easily adjustable and suitable for a variety of yarns. The pattern includes general recommendations for increasing its overall size, or create a recipe of your very own!
