Forever Linked Hat & Mitts
At the heart of the Outlander series is the love story between Jamie and Claire, which I wanted to capture with my design. The hat features two mirrored cables surrounded by garter stitch which are then echoed on each mitt, which has one half of the cable motif from the hat. Both the hat and fingerless gloves can be knit with just two skeins of Himalayan Trail yarn and would look great in any of the Outlandish colorways.
