A Fringe Shawl Inspired By Outlander Season 6
Looking at the colors, themes, and landscapes of Outlander season six, this shawl was created.
There are many triangle shawls seen in the Outlander series, most of them knit with worsted weight yarn and worn as Sontag shawls.
This fringe shawl is more of a blanket shawl and can be worn or draped around your shoulders in a number of ways.

A Simple Triangle Shawl
This shawl is created by making increases on the right side and wrong side rows.
The shawl will grow from those increases to create a triangle shape, making the sides longer than the back.
This is knit in stockinette stitch for a simple shawl that will look great when paired with any of your outfits!
The yarn I used
For this project, I used The Petite Wool from We Are Knitters in spotted grey; this is a bulky/chunky/12-ply yarn/Bulky weight yarn #5.
This was knit flat on size 8 mm (US 11) circular knitting needles; I used a 40-inch cable.
I used a long cable with circular needs to accommodate the number of stitches and did not join in the round.
You could try to use straight needles for this project, but the number of stitches will be challenging to manage as it grows.
