Join myself and Jimmy Beans Wool for a Mystery Knit-a-long inspired by the novel and TV show, Outlander! There will be 6 clues released each Saturday, beginning August 9th, with the premiere of Outlander on Starz. Join us in the Jimmy Beans Wool group for chatter and pattern questions!
You can purchase the special Outlander colors in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport from Jimmy Beans Wool here beginning July 31st! The pattern will be $3 for the duration of the MKAL, and then it will go up to $6 when it is over. Also, there are gorgeous matching stitch markers from Spark available here!

I have been a pretty huge Outlander fan ever since I discovered the books about 10 years ago. So of course, when I heard there was going to be a TV show I was ridiculously excited, and immediately began designing a pattern inspired by two of my favorite literary characters, Claire and Jaime. The Jimmy Beans Wool limited edition colors, dyed by Lorna’s Laces, were created with my input, specifically to represent them! However, the design will look lovely in any color combination, as long as there is a fair bit of contrast between the two.
The design is a two color shawl of intermediate difficulty. Knit in sport weight wool yarn, it will be super warm and snuggly, even for the harsh Scottish highland weather! You’ll have to join in to find out more!
