Little Women luxe shawl kit | ready-to-ship

  • 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 ready-to-ship kit

    Bring a bit of the love and comfort of Little Women into your knitting life with our Little Women shawl kit. We've made these kits in advance in the two photographed color pairings. They contain:

    • 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 enough for an intermediate knitter.

    • 3 skeins of luxurious yarn: Your yarn choices are as pictured: the cool blue of Lake Geneva (Amy) with an edging of Marry for Love (Marmee), or the fresh coral blush of Vanity Fair (Meg) with an edging of Pickwick Club (Laurie). The yarn is my luxurious 20% cashmere House Blend no. 2 base.

    • A perfectly illustrated project bag: The kit includes a drawstring project bag made 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.

    Full details about what's in the kit are on tab 2 (above).
