River Song is one of my favorite people in the Dr. Who series. The colors and the elegant yet simple cables evoke her for me. As an added bonus the stitch pattern closely resembles the symbol for water or river in the petroglyphs of the desert Southwest. So there was no way I could name this cowl anything other than River.
