This pattern was originally published as For Yarn’s Sake’s contribution to the 2022 Rose City Yarn Crawl, February 24th – 27th, 2022 in Portland, Oregon. This pattern is also available for download as part of the 2022 Pattern Collection: Bloom.

This stitch pattern was inspired by the humble thistle. Thistles are considered weeds by many because they can grow almost anywhere. Wrap yourself in this rectangular, center-out, reversible shawlette and follow the example of the thistle…Bloom everywhere!
