If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, the characters when in Scotland are seen wearing the tartan from their clan.

The large shawls that feature the Fraser tartan are wrapped around the shoulders, sometimes arranged over one shoulder.

Inspired by the shawls Claire and Jamie are seen wearing I created a knitted shrug that can be worn off one shoulder or both.


Classic Alize Lanagold (100g (3.53 oz)/240mt (262 yards) - in the colour - 151 Dark Grey x 6 (S/M)

*This yarn was knit with two strands together.

For a larger size - it is estimated that you will need 8+ skeins of yarn.

Yarn Weight - Bulky / Chunky / 12 Ply.


  • 8mm (US 11) knitting needles – I used my interchangeable circular needles on a 40″/100cm cable as there were many stitches – I did not join in the round to knit.
  • 10mm (US 15) interchangeable circular needles to cast off.


Level - Intermediate

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


This is for small/medium size: Width = 21.5 inches / 55 cm / Length = 25 inches / 64 cm

To make the shrug in a larger size - cast on more stitches (e.g 106) and knit to a length that suits you.

*You can make it shorter or longer depending on your own preferences.


Small batch sales of finished pieces made from this pattern are permitted, but the seller must use their own photographs and credit must be given to Handy Little Me as the designer.
