Is it a cowl? Is it a poncho? Its both!
Cowl-a-bunga is a versatile, lightweight cowl that can act as both cowl and poncho, and is an easy accessory to throw on for in-between weather.
I held together a strand each of beautiful Hedgehog Fibres Sock and Kidsilk Lace in the same colorway at a pretty loose gauge, which makes this cowl a really speedy knit that flows off your needles.
If you’re substituting yarn, you just need one precious 100g skein of sock/fingering weight yarn, and one 50g skein of mohair. Have fun mixing colours!
