If you are a fan of the Outlander knits from the TV show, then this post will share with you many patterns inspired by the main characters Claire and Brianna.
Throughout watching the show I have been motivated to create a range of knits including fingerless gloves and wrist warmers.
I get so many ideas from seeing the knitwear worn in the show mainly by Claire Fraser the main character as she travels through time.
*Scroll down for the free patterns and don’t forget to pin and share!*
If you are not familiar with Outlander but like the patterns then not to worry!
I can catch you up with a brief introduction to what it is all about…..
- The story in the first season follows a married nurse Claire Beecham Randall who travels to Scotland with her husband.
- Upon finding some ancient ruins, she time travels to Scotland in 1743 and meets up with the handsome rogue Jamie Fraser.
- Romance and adventure follow in all four seasons, going from Scotland, France to 1950’s America and back again to North Carolina in 1767.
Outlander Knitting Patterns
Whenever I watch the Outlander series I just love to look at the costumes and see how beautifully they are pieced together.
The colours that have been selected are also an inspiration, from neutrals in natural wool to heather and greens.
I made most of my pieces in browns, greys, green, blue and black.
As all of the knitting patterns have been inspired by the show, some are very similar, with designs based on the original items.
The patterns included are printables, you can easily print them out to get started.
There are many beginner patterns in garter stitch, ribbing, stockinette stitch and a few intermediate choices too, which feature cable knit designs.
Fingerless Gloves And Wrist Warmers
Throughout the shows seasons, Claire, Brianna and other characters are often seen wearing a variety of knitted items, including – shawls, capes, cowls and infinity scarves.
The wrist warmers and fingerless gloves are seen in a variety of designs, from simple ribbing to intricate cables.
My patterns include quite a few fingerless glove designs, so you can make a pair for yourself, for gifts or as a project to take along and share at your knitting club.
Cable Knit Stitch
Some of the patterns are for intermediate knitters, as they feature cable stitches, which are a little bit more complicated.
The cables are featured in fingerless gloves, wrist warmers and arm warmer patterns.
Some of the gloves knit in the round have the thumb gusset and others that are knit flat leave a hole for the thumb instead.
