NELLIX is a cowl worked top down and in the round in 2 textural, repetitive and reversible patterns. Dynamic twisted cable looking ribbed pattern combined with textural tuck stitch pattern creates floats over the top edge of the cowl, with longer and shorter sections all over the circumference. Worn wrapped twice around the neck creates a squishy cocoon that keeps you warm no matter the weather conditions appear. Dressed loosely over a blouse or a jacket, keeps you warm and smart looking.

Finished circumference: 140 cm (56”)
Length: longer sections – 40 cm (16”) / shorter sections -
32.5 cm (13β€œ).
