This is my version of the Rent Shawl, the one Claire is wearing in “Outlander”, series 1, episode 6, where she and Dougal are collecting the Rent.

The shawl is worked in Intarsia.
A small chart to get you started.
The shawl is knitted bottom up and is easily adaptable in size.
Gauge isn’t crucial but do make sure it isn’t too loose.

It also is more convenient to have the yarn on cones or balls and is weighed before you start.
