Paula Wiśniewska is a Polish knitwear designer, with a focus on lace and cable knitting, with a romantic yet modern feel. I got to met her at knitting festivals, and I was glad to help her test out her new Farnese Cowl.

I choose to knit it in the incredibly soft Baby Alpaca+Merino DK, a luscious blend of 50% softest baby Alpaca and 50% of natural Merino wool, in this yarn base the cowl will feel like a warm, soft, loving hug. The colo I choose is Pino Blu from my Winter Wonderland collection, choose your favourite color for your Farnese Cowl.

This kit include the yarn needed to complete the cowl but doesn't include a copy of the pattern which you need to buy separately from Ravelry.
