Time travelling

 There's a new book that was released today, and I have a pattern in it!

Outlander Knits book cover

This is "Outlander Knitting: The official book of 20 knits inspired by the hit series", edited by Kate Atherley. My contribution was a reproduction of this fair isle vest, worn by Frank in a fantasy sequence from the end of Season One's "The Way Out":

It's called "The Man I Left Behind", and it's a traditional fair isle slipover, steeks and all:

Yeah, I did a lot of squinting to try and get the chart right. :)

Fun extra image of my husband, who was a very good sport as I attempted to recreate the original scene from the series:

Available at quality bookshops and probably quite a fair few LYSes!
