This shawl knitting pattern is inspired by Jenny's shawl from Outlander worn by Jenny Murray, loaned to Mary McNab when she visits Jamie in the cave and later seen on Janet, Jenny's daughter.

This pattern will allow you to create a large triangle shawl with a ruffled edge/border.

The main body of this shawl is knit from one side to the other.

The ruffle is created along the edge of the shawl through short-row shaping.

You can watch a video tutorial showing you how to do this on my YouTube channel here.


Yarn Used – Cascade 220/100% wool – Iridescence (8872).

Yarn – 100g/219 yards/200m x 3 (S) x 4 (M) 5 (L/XL) x 6+ (XL/XXL).

Yarn weight – Medium weight 04/Worsted/Aran/10 Ply.

Please note – The shawl in the photographs is size M – and used 4 skeins of the Cascade 220 yarn.


5mm (US 8) knitting needles.

I used my interchangeable circular needles on a 100cm/40′′ cable as there were many stitches.

I did not join in the round to knit.


Level - Intermediate

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

The border of the shawl is created by short-row shaping.

There is a link to a video tutorial on my YouTube channel included to help you complete the ruffle border.


Please note - these sizes are just a rough guide, 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.

M - Width tip to tip - 65 inches/165 cm
M - Length - top to bottom = 28 inches/71 cm

You can add fewer or more stitches to adjust the size to increase or decrease.

Add fewer by - 10 stitches and more by + 10 sts.

Where you are able to adjust the size is noted in the pattern.
