Inspired by Claire Fraser wearing beautiful knitted pieces, the shrug is knit by working the honeycomb cable.

If you have never knit this cable before, it is fairly easy once you get into it.

It is very versatile, as it can be worn up high to protect your head when it is really cold, or down around your shoulders.


2 x Skeins of bulky yarn (100g) – I used two strands knit together of Alize Yarn (100g)in grey.

To substitute this, can use any yarn that is Bulky / Chunky / 12 Ply.


  • 12 mm (US 17) 24″ Circular Knitting Needles
  • 12 mm (US 17) knitting needle – either a cable needle or a knitting needle, I used a knitting needle.
