  • Journey into the wild with a full-hearted story and an inspired knit.

    The Time Traveler shawl kit is inspired by the novel Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, a marvelous story of being swept back in time 200 years to find another life and adventure. It features luxurious and inspired yarn, artist-illustrated fabric, and the kind of inspired knitting treasures for which Little Skein is known.

    The centerpiece of the kit is the shawl: Into the Wild, an asymmetrical triangle and knit on the bias. It was created to make the most of your favorite yarn, whether it’s solid, hand-dyed, variegated, or tonal.

    Yarn & pattern kit 

    Yarn & pattern kits include just that. You'll get two skeins of our House Blend luxury yarn in the pictured colorways: Sassenach and Glen Coe. Little Skein's House Blend is a fingering weight yarn with 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon, with 435 yards per 100 gram skein.

    You'll be able to download your pattern immediately, and in your kit box there will be a code to add the pattern to your Ravelry library as well.

Lovely shawl

I'm an Outlander fan, so when I saw this kit, I had to get it. I'm loving the feel of the yarn and the pattern is easy enough to follow while commuting. I love that the pattern has has been chartered and written out. It's the "one more row" type of pattern. I highly recommend it for an adventurous beginner lace knitter.
