Well, it's still a shawl, actually. But it turned out huge, so you can play with it a little. For example, you can turn it into a hood. Pull the hood down, and you get a cowl. Perfect for every hat-hater:)
The yarn I used for this shawl is 60% mohair and 40% acrylic, about one kilometer:) I like it, and I'll definitely knit from it again. It's mohair, but not very hairy. And very delicate, so it shouldn't irritate sensitive skin.
And I like the stripes it forms:)
