A kit to make Xander - a knitted shawl by Dieuwke Schack-Mulligen using Martin's Lab Aubrey Sport (2 skeins).

Each kit includes:

- 2 skeins of Aubrey Sport in color Marilyn and Lappato (one skein each color),

-  a printed copy of "Homecoming" book curated by Martin's Lab containing the instructions for the cowl and 10 more designs by various designers.

- Martin's Lab printed cotton project bag,

and one sachet of no rinse wool wash.

The pattern is inside the Stillness book.

From Ravelry pattern page:

One of the things I like most about knitting is how the basic can appear intricate, as well as the amazing synergy created by two simple colors. Xander achieves both by interposing an easy and entertaining slip-stitch pattern between broad swaths of color, creating the illusion of a complicated weave in a versatile and easy-to-wear piece.
Explore wild color combos or stay on the safe side – regardless, you’ll be dressed to impress.
