Thistle is part of the Graine de Collection, like Grand Large and Petit Large.
Thistle is a sweater with simple and neat lines spiced up by nice details like fake seams and slipped stitches. It is knitted from the bottom up, seamlessly. Stitches are picked up around the armholes and shoulders are shaped with short rows to shape a nice sleeve cap.
