Lovat Mitts and Cowl Outlander Knitting Kit
Inspired by Jamie's tartan with a pop of teal, the Lovat cowl and fingerless mitts take their design cues from traditional Scottish colorwork. The intricate colorplay of Fair Isle knitting has been simplified to make the Lovat set appealing to knitters eager to try their hand at one of the most famous Scottish styles. The Frasers of Lovat are a highland clan strongly associated with the area around Inverness; this set could have easily been worn by a clanswoman on a damp autumn's day in the Highlands.
Both the cowl and the fingerless mitts are worked in the round, and never use more than two colors per row, as per traditional Fair Isle techniques. Both are simply constructed, with no shaping, making them an ideal project for beginners seeking to build their colorwork skills.
Outlander Knitting is required for the pattern to knit this kit.
