OUTLANDER TV SERIES

 Based on the historical time travel novels by Diana Gabaldon, this exciting British-American TV drama series started filming in Scotland in 2013. Working closely with two award winning costume designers, I was asked to research and knit 1940's garments for two of the main characters - Claire and Frank Randall. Both required authentic sleeveless vests/slipovers, so I adapted vintage 3 ply yarn patterns to suit modern knitting yarns. Both garments were fully fashioned. Claire's vest was hand knitted adding a different cable pattern extending all the way to the shoulders. Franks' vest was knitted on a hand- powered machine with hand knitted rib detail. A number of textured panels and hats were also hand knitted.
