In the beginning of Season 1, Claire’s journey begins when she steps through the standing stones at Craigh Na Dun. The circle continues to play an important role in her story throughout the rest of the episodes, and of course it will continue to do so for the remainder of the story. For that reason, both the Lorna’s Laces limited edition color this month, as well as this mystery knit-a-long have been inspired by Craigh Na Dun!

The shawl will be knit using 2 skeins of Shepherd Sock, and the pattern will be released over the course of 5 weeks, beginning with the premiere of the second half of season 1 of Outlander on April 4th.

I have included 2 different unblocked gauges, 1x1 ribbing and garter stitch. This will allow you to check your gauge in the the first few inches of clue 1 to see if you are on track! Gauge is not super important with this pattern, so no need to stress too much about it :)


US 4 circular needle (at least 40”) or needle to obtain gauge
Cable Needle
Stitch Markers
Yarn Needle

24 stitches and 48 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch, before blocking.
32 sttiches and 28 rows = 4 inches in 1x1 ribbing before blocking, slightly stretched.
