thistle
classy lace scarf by Emily Wessel

The thistle is the Flower of Scotland; hardy, undemanding and prickly. This seems an apt symbol of old-time Scottish peasants, who survived for eons farming and foraging on this often inhospitable northern land.

Thistle is a simple and classy scarf which can be easily adjusted to make a wider stole or a throw blanket, and may be knit in any weight of yarn.

The thistle pattern is available as an individual pattern download, or as part of Handmade in the UK.
