First day of summer vacation for my nieces & a photo shoot of the most recent “Camino Inca” designs at the castle, and here they are, Miss Seventeen & Miss Fourteen….
Shown here is the small-size Ponchito, which is more of a large cowl draping around collar area & sits on top of shoulders for a kiss of warmth.
And the largest size, A-line silhouette with three tiers of colorful shaped sections with bobbled bands edging each section.
It envelopes shoulders & neck for a sensual & cuddly bliss!
I love the way the Camino Inca Ponchito sits snug across & over shoulders while loose and draping around the neck.
The ponchito is not unlike Peruvians’ traditional wool shoulder wraps pinned at the neck, and I think the Incans would approve, as it is a practical neck & shoulder garment that both women and men would look & feel brilliant wearing.
It really pulls together an outfit!
Oh, and almost forgot… in addition to three sizes of ponchito, there is the straight cowl option that comes with the pattern too…
Camino Inca Chullo is a classic Peruvian style hat (these with very modest pompoms) and is just fun & full of whimsy !
For any age, male or female, this hat can be made simplified, or exotic & costume-like, with motif charts & embellishment suggestions galore.
