Scrubland Collection: Thistle

Stripes always remind me of summer– even stripes, crooked stripes, wavy stripes, and zigzag stripes. I love the subtle zigzags achieved with this cable pattern, and the resulting top is tons of fun. These fun zigzags spice up days spent at the library, lounging by the river, or listening to music on the Platz.

Thistle is worked in two pieces from the bottom and seamed. Stitches are picked up for sleeves and neckband, which are worked in the round.

The finished garment measures 31(34, 37, 40, 43, 46, 49, 52, 55, 58, 61, 64)in/78.25 (86.25, 94, 101.5, 109.25, 116.75, 124.5, 132, 139.75, 147.25, 155, 162.5)cm at bust and measures 24in/61cm from shoulder to hem

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the chevron cable pattern. Thistle is available in my Ravelry store now!
