Green Gables shawl kit

10 reviews


Category: Green Gables, In stock

Type: Kits



I am delighted to reissue one of our most popular kits: the Green Gables shawl kit, which features everything you need to make "Balsam Hollow" by Paula Emons-Fuessle of the Knitting Pipeline.

The shawl is inspired by Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic novel, Anne of Green Gables, and it is a simple, practical and yet subtly fanciful shawl that brings to life the optimistic and enchanting Anne Shirley and her forever home on Prince Edward Island.



We have the original colorways available as well as our special two-color holiday version.

Your kit includes:

  • Pattern: A beautifully printed copy of the pattern and a PDF download when your kit ships. A bonus to our shop version of the pattern is that it includes instructions for creating a larger size shawl, a two-color version, as well as details on how to  maximize your yarn usage.

  • Yarn: Two 100g skeins of Leading Men Fiber Arts' bouncy, sportweight Callback yarn in the inspired colorway(s) of your choice. Two skeins is ample yarn to knit the standard or extended size. Choose to make a solid (tonal) shawl or a two-color variation.

  • Stitch markers: A surprise set of stitch markers from our Anne-inspired collection.

  • Anne-inspired greeting card: A professionally printed and illustrated greeting card with one of my favorite quotes from the book.

  • Extras: "Autumn Leaves" progress marker, a hand-collected and preserved autumn leaf, and all of Little Skein's signature special packaging.

Expand your kit

If you'd like to expand your kit into a Luxe version, you can add a project bag in my original "Prince Edward Island" fabric and coordinating interior print, with quotes from the book.

If you add a project bag, it will be sewn-to-order. Your kit will ship right away, and the project bag will follow in approximately three weeks.

Yarn notes

Leading Men Fiber Arts' Callback base is a round and bouncy 3-ply superwash merino wool. It absorbs color beautifully and is rich, saturated, and glowing. This yarn is the perfect sportweight blend and creates a drapey yet warm fabric.
