Closed-loop cables and garter stitch combine to make this super squishy and warm cowl, perfect for snuggling into on a cold winter’s day. The cowl is designed to be slightly cone-shaped, allowing it to expand nicely around the base of your neck while still keeping a close fit around your face.
Carnimírië is Quenya for “red-jewelled,” and is the name of a tree in Fangorn beloved of the Ent Bregalad. The diamond cables of this cowl resemble jewels surrounded by cables evoking the natural twining of tree branches.
