Claire Inspired Crochet Cowl Pattern #Outlander

 Hi friends!  It’s Heather from Twin Dragonfly Designs here to share a lovely free crochet pattern with you today.  

LOVE this gorgeous cowl that Caitriona Balfe is wearing as Claire in #Outlander! Stop by for a free crcohet pattern to make your own!

Have you been following the new Outlander series on Starz?  A few friends and I meet for a girls night each week to watch.  I think that it was during the second episode that the main character, Claire, was seen wearing a lovely woolen cowl.  The girls and I looked at each other and declared “we need to make one!”  I scoured the internet for a pattern and tried a few variations of my own before coming up with this cowl.  We all agreed that it needed to have a twist and be long enough to loop twice around.  I think that we have as close to the original as possible.  This is a super warm and bulky cowl that would be perfect for the Scottish Highlands *wink*.
