This Shetland Hap pattern is devised by Pam Austin to be knit on circular needles, it is very user friendly with plenty of pictures, written instructions and descriptions; suitable for any weight wool with appropriately sized needles – the needle size in increased as the work progresses. – pictured here in chunky handspun (left), four ply (centre) and handspun double knitting (right). The pattern is much simpler than it looks. It starts by knitting a square for the middle, then the old shale wavey part (said to represent waves on a beach) and finishes with peaks around the edge (said to represent snow capped hills). Skills required: knit, purl, yarn over, knit two together.
