Part of my Outlander Knitting Pattern Collection. If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, in season four, Claire has worn some very distinctive crossover triangle shawls.

A free version of this pattern can be found on my blog here.

You can also shop the pattern here.

Inspired by Claire Fraser wearing beautiful knitted pieces, the triangle wrap is knit by working from the top down.

The shawl will grow in size through a series of increases that occur through yarn overs.

This also gives a nice open stitch design down the spine of the shawl and along the edges.


Alize SuperLana Maxi (100g (3.53 oz)/100mt (109 yards) – in the color 240 – Dark Brown for the main body of the shawl (for the quantities you need please see the pattern info below).

This yarn is a wool/acrylic blend and very soft to touch.

For the black stripe, I used Alize SuperLana Maxi (100g (3.53 oz)/100mt (109 yards) – in the color 60 – Black.

You will need bulky/chunky/12 ply yarn for this shawl.

Yarn substitutes

I love this chunky – Hobby Lobby
Lion Brand Hue + Me
Comfort chunky – King Cole
Softee chunky – Bernat
Chunky cakes – Caron
Re: Treat – West Yorkshire Spinners
Simply chunky – Paintbox yarns


8 mm (US 11) 40-inch/100cm circular knitting needles for this pattern.

Using circular needles with a long cable is needed to accommodate a large number of stitches.


Level – Intermediate

This is an intermediate-level knitting pattern and the techniques involved are the knit stitch, purl stitch, yarn over, changing yarn colors, casting on, and casting off.


Please note – you can knit this shawl until it is comfortable for you to wear – test it out against yourself to see if you want to make the length shorter or longer before casting off.

S / M – width tip to tip – 82 inches / 208 cm
