9. Thistle Pattern Wool Sweater
Our list wouldn't be complete without the national emblem of Scotland! Thistles are so unique, adapt really well to their surroundings and the sharp prickles protects them, no wonder they are a symbol of Scotland. But like the Scottish, they can be sweet too. This Thistle Pattern Wool Sweater shows that perfectly! The repeat print in purple and green tones is whimsical and pretty.
