  •  

    Stitch makers are made-to-order, which means they'll ship in 3 to 5 business days.

    Relieve Pippi's adventures as you knit.
    You'll find everyone here – from Pippilotta herself to Mr. Nilsson to Pippi's famous suitcase full of gold coins. Choose your favorite or get the whole set – your first set is $12, and each additional set is $10 each. And, if you'd like the whole collection, you'll get one for free.

    Choose the packaging you'd like: a small glass bottle with a cork, a round tin with a Little Skein bunny top, or I can surprise you.

    I've made these stitch markers in a universal size of 10mm, which glides smoothly and easily over smaller knitting needles such as a US size 3 (3.25mm) all the way up to a US size 9 (5.5mm). My stitch markers are snag- and tangle-free. They feature a single jump ring made out of substantial 18-gauge base metal, with a color-coordinated Japanese glass seed bead. The ends of the ring are secured inside the bead, so the stitch marker is completely smooth to the touch and will not snag your knitting.


  • The Bold and Brave collection, inspired by the irrepressible Pippi Longstocking, is a mix of preorder and ready-to-ship items. If your order contains only ready-to-ship items, it will be on its way in 2 to 3 business days. Preorders ship in 3 to 4 weeks, and sooner if we can. If your order contains both ready-to-ship and preordered items, it will ship in one package when the preordered portion is ready.

    Please feel free to be in touch with us at any time if you have questions about your order or when it will be ready to ship. We're delighted to help!


  • I am delighted to introduce you to the artists involved with the Bold and Brave kit and collection:

    Knitwear designer and podcaster Megan Williams created the Fierce, Freckled Friend socks exclusively for our Bold and Brave kit. These beautiful toe-up knee socks are a tribute to the irrepressible Pippi and a reminder to add a little Pippi to your life – to always speak up, to be creative, and to be yourself and no one else.

    Two Sisters Yarn Company created three beautiful colorways for this collection: two self-striping options and a speckled (or freckled!) yarn. Anne and Jolane's Big Sky Base has become one of my favorites; it's soft and light and creates a beautifully hard-wearing fabric. Their dyeing styles are perfectly whimsical and clever, just like Pippi.

    Chamisa Kellogg is the talented artist who created the beautiful drawings that capture the spirit, joy and delight of Miss Pippilotta Longstocking and her Swedish world for the kit. Chamisa's drawings have become the Bold and Brave kit fabrics, laser-cut etchings on the sock gauge ruler, our "Follow Your Own Rules" greeting card and more.

    Tuft Woolens created a sparkling fresh sock soap in a Pippi-mint fragrance for this kit, so you can have as much fun washing your socks as wearing them. I am a fan of Martha's soaps and wool washes and am delighted to partner with her again.

    and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Bold and Brave kit: I bring everything together and share ideas with each of the artists so the kit becomes a cohesive whole. I create the stitch markers, sew the project bags (with our team) and hand-pack each order.

    We hope you love our creations!
