Inspired By The Outlander Costumes

If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, through all of the seasons, Claire has worn fingerless gloves and wrist warmers.

The outfit that inspired this design was Claire’s bridal dress, she wasn’t wearing any knitted pieces but I think it would have been a great match!

More Outlander Patterns

Inspired by Claire Fraser wearing beautiful knitted pieces, the arm warmers are knit flat and then seamed.

The large cables are seen twisting up through the design, moving up into a medium cable, and then finally a smaller cable.

The design is similar to another pattern in my Outlander collection, Claire’s cable knit wrist warmers.

The Cable Knit Stitch

This pattern is for intermediate knitters, as the cable knit stitches that have been used are a little bit more complicated.

  • The cables are intertwined throughout the front piece of the wrist warmers with a stocking stitch flat piece on the underside of the arm/wrist.
  • The pattern could be a bit difficult if you have never picked up the needles before, but if you have many projects under your belt and are looking to do something a bit more complicated, this pattern is worth your time!

The Yarn I Used

  • For this project I used two yarns knit together, to give a fluffy texture.
  • I used La Mia Natural Wool in the color beige(H2) from Hobium yarns and knit that with Drops Kid-Silk in pearl grey (09).
  • Knitting with two strands together was fun and gave a great texture to the wrist warmers.
  • The two yarns knit together give these cable cuffs a really great texture, which is both fluffy and soft.
