This Hap pattern is taken from the Traditional Shetland Scarves and Shawls booklet (Bestway K133) This pattern is described as ‘one of the most widely known and characteristic of Shetland designs.. The white and brown scalloped stripes are said to be inspired by the incoming tide, washing in lines of seaweed.’
This version is knit in Shetland Heritage Naturals, a completely undyed and worsted spun yarn released in 2016. The yarn is extremely soft and strong making it perfect for a Hap, we have made improvements on the pattern making it easier to follow and knit.
We have provided both written and charted instructions for the border and edging.
