Lisa McFetridge Muir Glenn Thistle Hat PDF
The thistle is the ubiquitous symbol of Scotland, found in green fields under deep blue skies, and sometimes iron grey skies. It is also found many places here in the United States. There are 3 different choices for the thistle graph, the first, more stylized graph is inspired by an old Scottish embroidery sampler, the second is taken from life, made to look more like the actual flower and a third, a combination of the other two. Pick the one you like best. Available in two shapes, SLIM SLOUCH and W-I-D-E SLOUCH, and in three sizes SMALL (infant/toddler), MEDIUM (child/small adult) & LARGE (adult/large adult).
