If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, in season four, Claire has worn some very distinctive crossover triangle shawls.
Inspired by the brown shawl Claire wears in season 4, episode 1 'America the beautiful' and in future episodes.
The design of the shawl is made so that you can wrap it around your body and tie it at the back.
This means that you can wrap up in your own version of Claire's Carolina shawl!

- 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.

Tips on trying out your shawl size...
When you get to the length where you think you want to try the shawl on, but you're not sure, take a ball of different color yarn and thread the end of it with a tapestry or yarn needle.
Don't cut the end of this ball of yarn, you will not need to!
Then thread all the stitches onto the different color yarn using the tapestry needle, pushing them off the knitting needles one at a time. (Don't worry, you can get them back!)
When the last stitch is off the knitting needles, stretch the shawl out to its natural shape, taking care not to lose the stitches off the different color yarn.
Now you can try it on and see how much longer you want it.
Then carefully pick up the first stitch from the different color yarn, put it onto your knitting needle, and pull the yarn away, leaving the stitch back on your knitting needle as good as new.
Repeat till you have all your stitches back and resume knitting your shawl.
