The Outlander capelet pattern has been inspired by Brianna’s capelet from the TV series Outlander.
Not identical to the original, this capelet has a more simple shape, allowing it to be worn in a couple of different ways.
*Scroll down for the printable pattern and don’t forget to pin and share!*
If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, Brianna wears a knitted capelet when she reunites with Jamie in season 4.
The capelet inspired me to make my own design, using similar colours and creating a similar shape.
The cape has been knit in rib on straight needles, not including short rows for shaping, but rather to be worn as a crossed over cape for warmth.
Brianna’s Reunion Capelet Pattern
Inspired by Brianna Fraser wearing beautiful knitted pieces, the capelet is knit flat and then held into place with a large button fastening.
I knit the cape with the idea that it creates a cosy shrug, wrapping into your shoulder and crossing over to fasten.
I decided to add a large button to fasten, but you could also use a large pin, which would make it more versatile.
Outlander Knitting Patterns
Whenever I watch Outlander I just love to look at the costumes and see how beautifully they are pieced together.
This capelet could be made in stripes as seen in the photos or all in one colour.
It is very easy to wear and can be worn wrapped around the shoulders or draped as a shawl.
