The Knot Hole Tree

Coming April 21st to the Little Skein in the Big Wool shop!

From Anne of Little Skein:

"It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived."
-Scout Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird squeezes my heart and won't let go, from Scout's dawning awareness of the injustice and inequality in the world, to Atticus' unwavering moral compass, to Jem's heartbreaking understanding that Boo Radley wants to stay inside because he can't face a world that harbors hatred and prejudice. Like Atticus, the book's message of compassion and courage is woven into every color, waiting for you to knit it into every stitch.
I am delighted to release The Knot Hole Tree cowl that first debuted at Stitches West. This cowl takes advantage of one of the simplest and most enjoyable ways to knit with self-striping yarn: stockinette stitch in the round. Enjoy the magic of color changes that happen automatically, encouraging you to knit just one more stripe. While a stockinette tube cowl can easily be knit without a pattern, I've devised several simple strategies to make the finishing work as easy as the knitting, so your kit includes a PDF pattern.
Choose between a simple yarn and pattern kit, or luxuriate in your memories of this courageous tale with a luxe kit.
