Project Spotlight: Aleksandra's Thistle Down Shawl

Rather than introduce this project, I cannot wait another minute so I'm just going to show you!

This gorgeous shawl was crocheted by theGreyGirl, Aleksandra, from Wash My Lace in Poppy and Curry. The pattern that she used is Thistle Down Wrap by Robin Abdullah. Aleksandra was happy to share a little more about the inspiration behind this stunning (and as you'll see, versatile!) piece.

"I chose the Thistle Down Wrap because I was looking for a versatile shawl with open lacework that could also be used as a wrap-around skirt. I’m also particularly found of leafy looking patterns so I instantly had this on my mental to-do list as soon as I saw it."

"I purchased the yarn at Loopy Yarns in downtown Chicago. The Poppy colorway instantly stuck out to me and I knew I wanted to make something with it. I’m very attracted to deep, saturated colors so it was something I was just naturally drawn to."

Thank you so much to Aleksandra for allowing us to share her incredible shawl and beautiful pictures!
