The Salutations kit is an homage to the sweet and moving story of Charlotte's Web, where a humble, terrific and radiant spring pig makes a true friend in Charlotte, grows up, and learns how to say goodbye.
This new version of one our most popular kits features luxurious hand-dyed yarn, project bags in original and inspired fabric, and a host of artisan knitting supplies. Each component of the kit is a unique find and gathered with the purpose of delighting you, as you read, knit and remember this timeless story.
The Love of Spiders shawl is the centerpiece of the kit. We've reimagined the original design using a gradient yarn inspired by Wilbur's beloved farm skies. The pattern is created with slipped stitches, making it easy knitting – perfect for beginners – as well as entertaining for more advanced knitters.
This kit includes a special version of the pattern with instructions for knitting the pictured gradient version of the shawl, together with a coordinating hat pattern. (You will also receive a Ravelry code to put the original pattern in your library, but this special version of the pattern is exclusive to Little Skein.)
Yarn & pattern (only) kits | $74 to $114
Yarn & pattern kits include just that: the yarn to knit this lovely shawl as well as our exclusive Little Skein version of the pattern. Choose to knit the gradient version ($114) which includes the 6-color gradient set plus a skein of Charlotte, or choose your favorite two colors from Charlotte's Palette to knit a shawl like the original ($74).

~ Hand-dyed gradient set (175g) plus 1 skein (100g) of Charlotte. Knit the gradient shawl exactly as pictured; we have created six-color gradient sets from the luscious "Farm Skies" colorways created for us by Marianated Yarns. There are 25g minis of five colors and a 50g skein of the darkest color. We pair it with Charlotte, the beautiful brown-grey main color that makes up the shawl's dotted stripes and textured border. The yarn is an ultra-soft merino/cashmere/nylon fingering weight blend with a high twist and generous yardage (400 yards per 100 grams | Scrumptious HT base).
