Pippi's Freckles shawl kit

Pippi doesn’t "suffer" from freckles. She doesn’t live by anyone else’s rules but her own, and she’s perfectly fine being a little different.

This whisper light and stunningly bold shawl pattern wasn't written for Little Skein, but it could have been, it so perfectly captures the spirit of Pippi Longstocking. Veronika Jobe, the maker behind Yarn on the House, designed the "Sun Kissed shawl" and offers it as a free pattern on Ravelry, and I am thrilled to promote it with scrumptious yarn and kit packages.

The Sun Kissed shawl celebrates everything I love about Pippi –
  • It’s strong and sweet.
  • It loves its freckles.
  • It says “I believe in me.”
For your kit, choose from three different color pairings, with the gorgeously speckled Pippi’s Freckles sock yarn by Two Sisters Yarn Co. and coordinating colorways on luscious Merino-Nylon-Cashmere yarn hand-dyed by Leading Men Fiber Arts. Or, use your beautifully paired skeins to try a brioche project – your kit will include a list of recommended brioche patterns available on Ravelry (some free, and some paid-for).


I've put together three kit options for you, with something at all price points.

Yarn-only kit $62

  • 2 skeins of yarn: 1 skein of Pippi's Freckles and 1 skein in your choice of a coordinating MCN fingering weight (scrumptiously soft!) yarn

  • Little Skein pattern recommendations. The Sun Kissed shawl pattern is free; we'll give you a link. And, we'll include additional brioche pattern ideas, in case you want to try something different)


Yarn-plus kit $78

The "yarn-plus" kit includes all of the above, plus:

  • A set of Sunkissed stitch markers in your choice of silver or bronze tone

  • A brand new Lo-Lo lotion bar (travel size) in our new, exclusive scent "Little Skein" (it's a fresh and light scent with echoes of amber, sandalwood, and sunshine)

  • A beautiful Pippi-inspired greeting card to send to a friend


Luxe kit $125

The Luxe kit includes all of the above, plus:

  • Project bag in an exclusive-to-Little Skein mod Swedish print of hand-drawn fish and flowers. Your bag will be interfaced with either squishy or stiff interfacing (maker's choice; and if you have a strong preference, let us know in the notes section of your order).
