Milk Thistle Pattern
By Béatrice Mase
Milk Thistle is a textured kite-shaped shawl with a unique flower. The shawl has been designed so that each shade of Cumbria Fingering has a different stitch pattern; garter and stockinette stitch in Scafell Pike, herringbone stitch in Fair Hill and a stunning flower stitch in Blackbeck.
Milk Thistle is the third pattern from our new collection, The Almanac Series, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns. This collection will feature new designs for every Yarn of the Month.
