Hand knit Claudia Winkleman's look from BBC The Traitors - Knitwear Style

If like us, you have been watching every episode of BBC The Traitors series 2 on tenterhooks, not just for the gripping TV show (obviously), but with added anticipation of what knitwear Claudia Winkleman will be wearing next, then you will enjoy what we have to share in this post.

Claudia’s style has really caught our eye. We have her stylist
Sinead Mckeefry to thank for the mix of heritage knitwear, classic designs with a twist (smiley faces on elbows), British countryside chic with a dash of punk to boot.

If, like Claudia, you style your hand knits with a kilt and cannot find your kilt pin, we even have you covered for that.

We took a dip into our vast selection of knitting patterns to curate designs with a similar feel to those worn by Claudia in the BBC hit The Traitors. We’ve discovered the perfect dupe for that over sized red sweater and a variety of cable knit jumpers, that are crying out to be cast on in buttery cream yarn. Knitting needles at the ready, it is time to add a sprinkle of Claudia Winkleman’s Traitors style to your wardrobe.

A great match is this oversized sweater with billowing sleeves from West Yorkshire Spinners, knitted in their chunky roving yarn - Retreat. In case you are wondering there is a bright red shade!

There is something so cosy about a cable knit. It only took seeing Claudia wear this classic cream cable knit to hit the search button on our website. We have come back with a couple of options.

Mode at Rowan - Modern Aran Style 4 Projects

A similar cable stitch to that seen on Claudia's jumper. We found this one in Mode at Rowan - Modern Aran Style 4 Projects knitted in Rowan Kid Classic.

This cable knit jumper knitted in a cream shade of Sirdar Haworth Tweed DK.

Fair Isle Sweater

Although this fair isle design is in a deeper shade palette, it could easily be changed up for soft pastels.

Now we couldn't find a smiley face on the elbows, but we did find a fab men's cable knit. That would give the option for an oversized fit. 

Boyd sweater from West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft DK

How about a men's cable knit sweater in West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft DK? The shade of green used for the 'Boyd' sweater could be just the colour too.

Oversized Cardigan

V-neck oversized cardigan, we've got you! Oversized really does seem to be the theme here, you can't beat that for super cosy looks. Add bold black or brown buttons and style it with a blouse. This design in Rowan Pebble Island will tick the box for Claudia chic.

Did we forget to mention our urge to accessorise every outfit with a pair of wrist warmers or fingerless mitts too?
