Knit in a chevron and eyelet pattern interrupted by purl stitches, the ups and downs of the chevron itself as well as the depth and relief of the knit and purl stitches evoke all manner of topographical features: hills, valleys, chasms, rivers, bays, cascades, inlets, hollows, flats.

Ideal for hand-painted or self-striping yarn, the doubtless “unvented” stitch pattern incorporates ribbing for stretch and a better fit.
