Type: Kits

The Green Gables shawl kit 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.

Your kit includes:

  • Pattern: A beautifully printed copy of the pattern, a PDF download when your kit ships, and a code to add the pattern to your library on Ravelry.

  • Yarn: Two 100g skeins of Leading Men Fiber Arts' bouncy, sportweight Callback yarn in the Green Gables colorway, which was originally created for this kit. Two skeins is ample yarn to knit the standard or extended size.

  • Stitch markers: Your choice of coordinating stitch markers from a new series of Anne-inspired collection.

  • Extras: "Spring Leaves" progress marker, surprise sweet treat and all of Little Skein's signature special packaging.

Customize your kit

If you'd like to expand your kit into a Luxe version, you can add any of the following:

  • 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 and your kit will therefore ship in about two weeks. Drawstring bags are $30; sock zips are $36 and larger shawl-sized zipper bags are $48.

  • Book: I have available a beautiful, hardcover edition of Anne of Green Gables, with cover art by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. $16 sold out

  • Kindred Spirits shawl pin in sterling silver or antique bronze, handcrafted by jewelry artist Leslie Wind exclusively for this kit. Sterling silver $42; antique bronze $30

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.
