Milk Thistle is a textured kite-shaped shawl
with a unique flower design by Béatrice Mase.

This shawl project will stretch your knitting skills and create a beautiful and unique piece of wearable art!

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.

Knit with Cumbria Fingering yarn:

England’s stunning north-western landscape with its deep blue
lakes and sheep-grazed fells inspired this fingering-weight yarn
made from fine Merino for softness, wool from the English
Masham sheep for a beautiful heathered colour and Argentinian
mohair for strength and lustre.


Treat yourself to a beautiful Milk Thistle kit which includes:

--the PDF pattern
--4 hanks of Cumbria Fingering
--a project bag to keep it all in
