Inspired By The Outlander Costumes
If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, in season four, you have probably noticed the beautiful costumes and knitted pieces that Claire’s daughter Brianna wears, including her olive green fingerless mittens.
Brianna is seen wearing a range of knitted pieces, including a striped capelet and a simple garter stitch knitted infinity scarf.
They are also in many neutral colors, from shades of grey, olive greens, black and brown.
Seen worn below with the Brianna Outlander Capelet – with short row shaping.
Fingerless Gloves Worn By Brianna In Outlander
This design is inspired by the gloves worn by Brianna with her capelet in Outlander season 4, episode 9 ‘The birds and the bees’.
They have a curled edge, at the wrist, at the top of the hand and thumb, to look like Brianna’s gloves in the image below.
Basic knowledge of knitting is all that is required for you to get started.
More Outlander Knitting Patterns
Whenever I watch Outlander I just love to look at the costumes and see how beautifully they are pieced together.
Claire and Brianna’s costumes have motivated many knitters to make shawls, infinity scarves, and more throughout the four seasons that have aired so far.
I wanted to make a collection of knits that are inspired by both Claire and her daughter Brianna.

Outlander Brianna Fingerless Gloves Pattern
Skill Level – Intermediate
The gloves knit up quickly and the simple design makes for a relaxing and enjoyable knit.
The Brianna fingerless gloves are perfect for the colder weather, as they have been knit with medium weight yarn (04), in Himalaya Everyday New Tweed, shade 75122 – olive green.
Using knit stitches, you will create an interesting design, knit in the round on circular needles, with the thumb gusset.
The thumb gusset is explained in the pattern and is easy to follow, knitting in the round so that you don’t have to pick up and knit stitches later on.
