This wisp of a shawl is crocheted top down, in a pattern stitch that reminds me of the Scottish thistle. Each thistle is embellished with a #6 seed bead in the Aurora Borealis finish, and beads accent the edging as well. It’s perfect for a holiday party, an evening out, or as a gift for a treasured friend.
