Elementary Wrap In Quartz
It might be completely no-frills, but our Elementary Wrap has style in spades. This classic pattern has a knack for showing off whatever yarn it’s knit in, and this time, in our lovely Quartz yarn, the results are truly stunning.
Knits and purls are all you need to make this lovely expanse of fabric, and yet there’s something vital and comforting in the finished swath of stockinette, particularly in this lively Fresh Pickle color.
In any hue, the Elementary Wrap highlights the wonderful texture created by Quartz’s merino-suri mix, smooth and soft, with the slightest halo… downright dreamy!
