From the pattern description: A flowing sequence of leaf and flower motifs symbolic of the regal Scotch thistle combine into this beautiful lace stole. As with the stately thistle where taller leaf stalks form at base of the plant and dainty flower heads adorn tips of the stalks, the lace leaf and flower motifs in this knitted stole transition from taller to shorter.

Notes from Jackie: The stole is knitted in two pieces, then joined at the middle by an easy method that does not require grafting. The resulting seam is nearly invisible to all but the most discerning eye.
