Kits with our exclusive colorway from Viola, as well as kits with our Outlander-inspired yarn palette, are available in the Little Skein shop.

Time Traveller is inspired by the novel Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. It celebrates the space between joy and grief, where you find out who you are and where you belong.

The book is a marvelous story of being swept back in time 200 years to find another life and adventure, and the shawl likewise has elements of the unexpected. It is an asymmetrical triangle and knit on the bias. Its delicately curved shape and feminine picot edge make it versatile to wear and utterly romantic.

You can make Time Traveller with a subtle solid color, like the “Time Traveller” grey created by the talented Emily Foden of Viola yarn exclusively for Little Skein, or go bold with two colors. The shawl was created to make the most of your favorite yarn, whether it’s solid, hand-dyed, variegated, or tonal.

Size: 80 inches wingspan and 20 inches at the deepest point of the triangle.

Skills needed: Perfect for the adventurous beginner and intermediate knitter. To knit this shawl, you will need to be able to:

  • knit and purl
  • increase and decrease stitches
  • read a chart or follow written directions
  • follow a tutorial for a picot bind-off
