Outlander Claire Shawl

The shawl’s colors and designs were inspired by the green Sontag shawl worn by Claire during season 5 in the Outlander series.

With green colors similar to those seen in the show, this shawl could be worked up in any color.

I chose colors from the Cascade 220 palette, that I thought would match as you can see below.

More Outlander Knitting Patterns

Claire Fraser’s costumes have motivated many knitters to make shawls, infinity scarves, and more throughout the five seasons that have aired so far.

I wanted to make an Outlander collection of knits that are inspired by both Claire and her daughter Brianna, from Sontag shawls, mittens, and scarves.

You can see a roundup of Outlander Knitting Patterns here.
