Shetland Hap pattern



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.
