Orchid Thief PDF
In Ysolda's Orchid Thief shawl pattern, three petals bloom from the center top edge, their points organically growing into the three spines of yarn over increases. This unusual increase pattern creates the perfect shape for staying in place around your shoulders. The petals along the edge are grouped into threes, echoing the center and forming deep scallops.
