Fretwork is a cowl of delightful surprises. One side boasts an ornamental charm that mimics lush cabling but requires none — carefully placed three-stitch clusters create the illusion with minimal effort. The other side reveals a subtler, geometric texture that begs a closer look. Though named after a precise technique of decorative carving, Fretwork knits up easily and quickly in Quarry and is sure to add a refined statement to any ensemble.
