Who’s excited for the second season of our favorite Scottish TV series (for copyright reasons, we are no longer allowed to use the name, but you all know of which one we speak!)?!?! I know I am…the gorgeous pictures and trailer have made me particularly excited to see the beautiful clothing and setting in France.

Of course, I’ve been fascinated by the costumes on the show since the beginning, so this year I designed a color combination based on the plaid that Jamie wears for most of the first season. I love the dark browns that are paired with a lighter shade of blue-gray. The design is a shawl and though it uses 2 colors, you will only be using one color at a time per row. The pattern will be $3.50 until the MKAL ends, then it will go up to $7.00.

Also, merryClusters will be doing an MCAL to go with the yarn and show this year, so be sure and check it out!
