I have tried to duplicate the cowl we see Claire wearing in the promo pics for Starz’s “Outlander” series.

This yarn is super bulky/6 and two strands are held together for this pattern. These are huge needles at 25mm. I have found tucking the left needle between my side and left elbow is helpful when working the stitches.

Took me a while to figure out the dimensions. I either made it too big or too small, wasn’t sure if it should be long enough to allow for it to be twisted and doubled up. I’m still not sure if there is some shaping on her cowl, but, in the end, this is what I came up with:

( My pattern is not twisted/doubled. You just slip it over your noggin and go about your business.)

It’s so nice seeing everyone’s projects! Thank you for taking the time to post them!!! :)
