Wrap yourself in wooly warmth as you head off for your favorite trailhead. Notch reminds us of deep and narrow mountain passes, with slipped stitch columns creating high relief ridges aloft a valley of knit and purl stitches. Knit in Quarry, this wrap will surely keep you warm though the openness of double yarn overs worked in the fabric will hinder overheating as you wander the wilderness. A simple two row-repeating pattern makes Notch a perfect trailside companion.
