Silky Merino Cat Cay Cowl

I’m so, so happy to have finished this cowl! I’d bought the wool from Wool Baa in Port Melbourne back in September 2016, on the way out to Horsham with my daughter. It’s the gorgeous Adorn Silky Merino 4 ply 420 – Sapphire. I had just found the Cat Cay Cowl pattern by Ann Budd […]
