Arm Warmers And Mittens Worn In The Outlander TV Series
In all of the seasons of Outlander that have aired so far, you will notice the main characters Claire and Brianna wearing lots of arm warmers and fingerless gloves.
Claire is often seen wearing a grey pair of fingerless mittens in seasons 4 and 5 when she is at her home at Fraser’s Ridge.
The version she wears is knitted and this pattern will allow you to make a crochet version.
Crochet Rib Stitch
The fingerless mittens are crocheted using a simple rib stitch.
This gives them lots of texture and helps to make them look similar to the knitted version.
The crochet rib stitch is a great beginner stitch pattern as it’s simple to learn.

You will make two pieces for the mittens.
Each piece is worked sideways in length.
Each piece is worked in ribbing with a single strand of yarn.
- Make a slipknot and ch 40, ch 1, turn,
- Row 1: (RS) sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, sc into every ch, ch 1, turn,
- Row 2: (WS) sc into every st to the end of the row, ch 1, turn,
- Row 3: (RS) *sc into every st through the back loop only – *rep to the end of the row, ch 1, turn,
- Row 4: (WS)Rep row 2.
- Row 5: (RS) Rep row 3.
*Rep rows 2 and 3 until the piece measures = 6 inches.
To finish the final stitch, cut a length of yarn for seaming – around 12/14 inches long.
*This is where you can adjust the width of the mitts – if you need to make them larger to fit around your hand you can easily add more rows until you have your desired length for a comfortable fit.
TIP – Test by placing around your hand/wrist to see if you need to add more rows as you work.
- Fold the piece in half and start seaming from the bottom edge up for 8 inches, using the mattress stitch (or you can sc the sides).
- Leave a hold for your thumb to fit through that measures around 1.5 inches.
- Then continue to seam the top of the hand for 1.5 inches.
- Weave in all loose ends.
- Repeat with the second mitt.
*If you make changes to the length you will have to adjust the measurements for seaming.
