Little Women shawl kit

  • Know who you are and love with your whole heart.

    Sisters, whether born into the same family or sisterhood built from friendship later in life, are the best of all, and no story expresses the joy of sisters more than Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

    The March sisters are whimsical and wholesome, spend boisterous hours outdoors with mischief and fun, and remain, throughout their lives, each other’s steadfast and true friends.

    Although it was written 150 years ago, Little Women is about growing up and growing into who we are meant to be. Despite the gender constraints of the day, each sister finds the place that makes her truly happy. Jo shows us that women can be writers and intellects. Meg's romantic nature shows us the value of making a home.

    Even though the sisters are so different 
in temperament and interests, each has a warm and pure love for the other, and they are surrounded by others who love and appreciate how authentic and open-hearted they are.

    Little Women shows us that love, given without expectation of gain, is the most truly rewarding part of life.

    About our shawl kit

    Bring a bit of the love and comfort of Little Women into your knitting life with our Little Women shawl kit, which contains:

    • A beautiful shawl pattern: The shawl itself is styled as a sampler, with different stitch patterns to represent each of the girls and an applied edging representing Marmee, whose wise counsel knits everyone together. While the shawl looks complex, it is well within the skill range of an adventurous beginner and is entertaining for an intermediate knitter.

    • 3 skeins of luxurious yarn: Our yarn palette is inspired by each of the girls, Marmee, and Laurie—and all the colors coordinate beautifully. Choose your favorite color (or your favorite sister) for the main color and choose an accent edging. Yarn is dyed to order, by me, on my luxurious House Blend no. 2 base.

    • A perfectly illustrated project bag: The kit’s project bag is beautifully sewn from original fabric that was created from gorgeous and delicate watercolor illustrations by artist Jennifer Potter. The project bag perfectly captures the March’s foibles and triumphs.

    • Useful and inspired extras: I’ve rounded out the kit with a set of useful and inspired items to make you laugh and help you remember the story as you begin to knit your shawl. Light a candle gently scented of Meg’s bread and jam, secure an inspired enamel pin on your coat lapel, or add one of the whimsical page flags to your current novel.

  • Shipping details

    This listing is for our fully customized Little Women shawl kit, and it is a preorder. We'll start making your kit and dyeing your yarn after you've placed your order.

    Because we have limited production capacity (and because we want to make sure each kit is perfect), I've set up orders by estimated ship date. Please keep in mind that this is an estimated date, and we will try to ship earlier if we can, and likewise, it may be a bit later if we run into longer-than-usual lead times getting supply restocks.

Great Kit!

I love all the pieces in this kit. The page markers have been great for marking my new Christmas cookbooks. I can't wait to knit up the shawl with the beautiful yarn.

As always, Little Skein bags do NOT disappoint! The Little Women fabric captures the spirit of the book. The yarn is also lovely. I'm looking forward to knitting this shawl.

Little Women Kit

Beautiful kit! Excellent quality, and a joy to receive. Thank you, Anne.

So pretty I can’t sleep

I got my kit a few days ago, waited until everyone had gone to bed before I opened. Why? Well because every piece in the Little Women kit deserves to be cherished... the yarn is beautiful as are all the other items. You feel special as you unbox each item. This is my second purchase and I know I will buy again bc the kits are so well planned, packaged and executed. Now if I could just sleep - it’s so pretty....
