Bibliophile shawl kit

5 items left
Wrap yourself in your love of books.

Bibliophile is a potato chippy* wrap especially for makers who love books. It is inspired by the juxtaposition of colors and textures seen in a shelf full of books, and the twists and turns taken by the stories inside them. Each section of the shawl features a slightly different texture pattern and shaping, creating variations on a theme. When the knitting is finished, you can wrap yourself up in your love of books.

About the wrap

Designed by Karalee Harding for Little Skein, this asymmetrical, irregularly-shaped shawl begins as a basic top-down triangle, but (like any good story) it takes some unexpected turns along the way. Starting at the top of the center spine, it is worked outward in 5 sections, each featuring a different stitch pattern; the shawl shaping also changes from one section to the next, making it very hard not to knit just one more row.

Two sizes, infinite color options

The pattern includes two sizes. The small uses 5 coordinating mini-skeins of at least 25g each, and the large uses 10 mini-skeins for a total of approx. 870 yards.

We've put together kits in the pictured colors, which were drawn from the book inspired colorways created for our Little Stitches subscription box.

The small set is called Bookworm and features colors inspired by Beatrix Potter, Misty of Chincoteague, A Little Princess and more.

The large set is called Reading Fort and contains these inspirations plus more from the Wizard of Oz, A Christmas Carol, To Kill a Mockingbird, and more. (The name of each mini-skein plus its inspiration is in the pattern).

*The change of colors and patterns means you can't help knitting just one more row.

Bibliophile Shawl Kit

Beautiful, beautiful yarn and colors! I'm looking forward to knitting a gorgeous colorful shawl, reminding me of all the lovely books that inspired the kit. The pattern is wonderful. As always, I'm so happy with my purchase.

Bibliophile Shawl

Well, when you combine books and yarn, I cannot resist! I ordered the five skein yarn kit and it arrived within just a few days of ordering it. The yarn is absolutely beautiful. The colors are better than what was pictured! This is not my first purchase from Little Skein and will definitely not be my last!

What beautiful yarn for a beautiful shawl! The colors are amazing and I can’t wait to get this on the needles!

This is my third or fourth kit from the shop and I’m always so happy with the squishy mail!
