The highly-anticipated sixth season of Outlander came out this month and what better way to celebrate it than knitting your own Outlandish pieces to wear! Whether it be a gift to a fellow Outlander fan or to wrap up for yourself, we have a few Outlander-inspired patterns just for you.



One of Claire’s most iconic wardrobe staples is her shawl. This intermediate knitting pattern (by @handylittleme) is made with chunky earth-toned yarns and the simple techniques of knit, purl, and yarn over. This piece can be used to layer over shirts and dresses, and makes a great addition to your winter wardrobe.

If you’re more of a crocheter than a knitter, or if you want to get into crocheting, then here is an alternative to the shawl pattern. This crocheted triangle shawl (by @handylittleme) is easy and beginner-friendly.

Another staple of Claire’s wardrobe are her fingerless mittens. This quick pattern (by @handylittleme) takes two hours to make, consists of only knits and purls and is knit flat so it’s perfect for beginner knitters. Whether you are time-travelling through the craigh na dun or going on a stroll in the forest, these gloves are the perfect addition to your wardrobe.

“Like mother like daughter” as they say; an iconic piece worn by Outlander's mother and daughter duo Claire and Brianna is a chunky cowl/scarf. This infinity scarf pattern (by @handylittleme) is made for beginners and requires few supplies. Use some earthy tones, like browns or greens, to create a wardrobe staple that can be styled with anything, or go with a pop of colour for a statement piece! A trick to bulking up your yarn to make this chunky knit scarf is to double up on your piece of yarn!
