Knit It: Outlander-Inspired Chevron Shawl

The knitwear [seen in Outlander], which is largely comprised of wrist warmers, cowls and shawls is gorgeous, and it’s nice to see quality knitwear represented on TV. The shawl pictured here on Claire, the main character, caught my eye in particular when I watched the show.

Pictured here in pink and orange—you can knit it muted colors if you’d like yours to be more true to the show—this triangle-shaped garter stitch shawl is a wonderful example of how lovely simple, functional design can be. Ready to start knitting? Whip up your own Outlander-inspired chevron shawl with this free pattern from Heidi at Hands Occupied!

Alas, the pattern doesn’t ensure the arrival of a hot highlander. (But, a gal can dream, right?!)
