Inspired by Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser from the Outlander series by Diane Galbaldon. I read the books long before they became a TV series. I’d always imagined Jamie to be “bigger.”

Designed for Sock Knitters Anonymous July 2018 Lace Challenge. A solid colorway is recommended to showcase the lace. Beading is optional (minimum of 112 beads, if you choose to do a little beading).

Clues will be released on a weekly basis.
Clue 1: July 1
Clue 2: July 8
Clue 3: July 15
Clue 4: July 22

Pattern has both charts and written instructions.
