overbrim (intransitive verb): to flow over the brim; overflow

My first memory of the word “overbrimming” involved reading about someone who was on the verge of crying from joy. The text explained that their eyes were overbrimming with happy tears, and I thought that sounded rather nice. I’ve kept the word in my mental back pocket ever since.

And then I got the idea to design this deliciously massive wrap. It is overbrimming in every sense of the word, full of textures and eyelets and cables. I wanted this thing to be a sensory feast so that, whenever someone picked it up to work on it or wear it, they would feel wrapped up in abundance. Never fear, though—as usual, this wrap has a repeat that’s only eight rows long and uses lots of repetition and symmetry to make it easily memorized.
