New and improved with edits and updates for 2016. Happy knitting!

Claire is a simple top-down seamless shawl with textured moss-stitch panels and collar, making it cozy and fun to wear. The Fitzgibbons Gauntlets are deliberately wide and long up the upper arms to accommodate wearing over long sleeves. The Claire Shawl and Fitzgibbons Gauntlets are the first two of my series based on characters from Outlander, one of my all-time favorite book series. Look for my Brianna Cabled Cloak too.

Shawl Size: One size - Approx. 58.5” (149 cm) around at widest point of lowest edge (pattern includes tips on making it wider)
Shawl Length: 16” (41 cm) from cast on to bind off (pattern includes tips on making it longer)
Shawl Yarn: 600 yards (350 grams) heavy worsted weight. Sample knit in Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride in color Kiwi and used about 600 yards.
(Note: Yardage needed will vary by specific yarn you choose. Also, if you plan to follow the instructions to widen and/or lengthen your yardage will go up. Always round up, as it is better to have too much yarn than to run out in the middle of a project.)
Needles: US #8 (5.0 mm) 32” circular and US #8 dpns (or size needed to get gauge)
Notions: 4 stitch markers
Gauge: 16 sts and 22 rows = 4” in St st

Gauntlet Size: One size
Gauntlet Hand circumference: 8.25” (21 cm)
Gauntlet Arm circumference: 9” (23 cm) (Note: The gauntlets are deliberately wide to accommodate wearing over long sleeves and up the arms)
Gauntlet Yarn: 190 yards (95 grams) heavy worsted weight. Sample knit in Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride in color Kiwi and used about 160 yards but I rounded up on yardage needed as running out is no fun.
Needles: US #8 (5.0 mm) 32” circular and US #8 dpns (or size needed to get gauge)

Gauge: 16 sts and 22 rows = 4” in St st
