I bought the EF Shibori poncho after Brooklyn mentioned it on a Black Friday specials thread. We had both admired Jenn's. Jenn also used it as a scarf for an airplane flight, which is kind of brilliant, actually:


As you can see it kind of makes a cowl on me. I have a similarly made poncho in very light weight wool. It also makes a cowl. The plaid one is square, whereas the EF one is oblong. I had a piece of fabric handwoven by my MIL and saw this thread and decided to turn it into a poncho:


Brooklyn, is this what you meant? I think it's the nature of the beast. I'm wearing a turtleneck shirt on both. I added a couple of other pictures of ponchos with cowls formed.

Jenn, do you have any thoughts on this?
