Love the Flower of Scotland? We do too! Embrace your inner Highlander when you knit this luxurious stole.

Celtic knot borders and thistle flower motifs are mirrored on a delicately pale background. With hemmed edges and tassels that look like real thistles, it’s delightfully fun to knit, and even more so to wear.

Work it in a big circle on 60” needles, then cut a steek to make a 66” x 19” rectangle.

Six colors of sportweight are all you need to live out your own Celtic fantasy.
