Several styles knit in several sizes!

The Camino Inca, also known as the “Inca Trail” or “trail to Machu Picchu”, is a road built by the Incan Empire long ago, but parts of it are still traveled today, and it is the traditional Peruvian folk dress in the High Andes which inspires this design. Pattern includes instructions for a ponchito & basic cowl. (See accompanying Camino Inca Chullo)

Excellent stash-buster project for worsted to bulky weight yarns ~~ alternatively try bulky weights for small size to achieve larger fit!
