We all have that one friend or family member with a very unique sense of style that doesn’t always translate well into a simple knitted hat, mittens or scarf. Enter the Boko-Boko Cowl by Olga Buraya-Kefelian. This sculptural cowl is as much a winter accessory as it is art. A strand of fingering weight yarn is knit along with a strand of silk/stainless steel, which helps to preserve the spiky texture without making the finish product rigid or scratchy. Feel free to keep the colors of both strands the same, or mix them up for even more added interest. Available in three sizes, this fun accessory is easy to customize to the recipient’s exact specifications.
