Journey into the wild with a full-hearted story and an inspired knit.
The Time Traveler shawl kit is inspired by the novel Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, a marvelous story of being swept back in time 200 years to find another life and adventure. It features luxurious and inspired yarn, artist-illustrated fabric, and the kind of inspired knitting treasures for which Little Skein is known.
The centerpiece of the kit is the shawl: Into the Wild, an asymmetrical triangle and knit on the bias. It was created to make the most of your favorite yarn, whether it’s solid, hand-dyed, variegated, or tonal.
