The Secret Garden shawl kit


Remember "The Secret Garden" and just how lovely an awakening garden can be, as you knit this iconic cabled shawl.

I am delighted to restock my beautiful Secret Garden kit featuring the Secret Garden pattern from Alana Dakos. The kit has the original "Misselthwaite Manor" grey yarn created by Western Sky Knits for the design. It's a soft-as-baby-kittens merino-cashmere-nylon yarn that knits up beautifully in this cabled and textured design.

Your kit includes:

- Secret Garden shawl pattern: You will receive a professionally printed copy of the pattern in your kit, with a Ravelry code to add it to your library. You will also receive an immediate PDF download of our shop version of the pattern, which has additional supports such as written directions (the printed pattern has charts only) and stitch counts. The pattern requires intermediate level knitting skill, but is also within the skill range of an adventurous beginner.

- Two skeins of Western Sky Knits hand-dyed Magnolia Sock yarn in the exclusive Misselthwaite Manor colorway, developed just for this shawl.

Hand-dyed by Western Sky Knits
Misselthwaite Manor colorway
Approximately 378 yards | 4 ounces
80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon

- A set of Secret Garden-themed stitch markers

- A handmade ceramic button by Melissa Jean Buttons, which is an optional addition to the shawl, and was created for this kit to coordinate with the color and design.

Secret Garden Shawl Kit

I was so excited that this kit was available again and in the Misselthwaite Manor colorway. I wanted to make the longer version so I purchased an additional skein of yarn. The yarn is so yummy because of the cashmere. The cute ceramic leaf button, the stitch markers and even the little bouquet of flowers show how much thought went into marketing this kit. I absolutely love it and I'm anxious to start on it

Love everything about this!

This kit is the best! The bag is so well made, I especially love the handle I added. The stitch markers are beautiful, the pattern is well written, the yarn is amazing colors and so soft and everything was so prettily packaged. It was all well worth the cost. I started the shawl as soon as it arrived and since I am a slow knitter, I didn't get to the end until 3 months later, only to discover that I was going to run out of yarn with just one row left to go! I messaged Anne about whether any more yarn would be available in the future and she replied back in a few hours to say that she had one lone skein that the color was a bit more yellow-green than the olive green it should be that she would sell to me or she would introduce me to Western Sky Knits and let her know I wanted to order a custom skein. I bought the skein she had left since I was eager to finish the shawl and wanted to get it as soon as possible. Despite it being mere days till Christmas, it arrived on Christmas Eve and I was able to bind off my shawl on Christmas Day while digesting dinner. Also when I started the shawl, I was confused about the triple stitch increase and I posted about it in the knit-along thread on her Ravelry group and she quickly posted a video of her making the stitch! That's customer service! The only complaint I have is that I didn't order a zipper pull for the bag, the cute bit of ribbon she tied to the zipper has unraveled because I didn't have the forethought to dab the ends with fray stop. Thanks Anne, I can't wait to see what next years kits will be!
