About the pattern

Designed to be the ultimate comfort knit, the Swale hap is knitted almost entirely in soothing garter stitch using two colours of the irresistible Whitfell DK. The simplicity of the design will delight beginner knitters curious about the hap construction; more experienced knitters will love how quickly the pattern works up. The surprisingly simple garter stitch lace edging adds a touch of sophistication to the pattern. This beautiful shawl is a brilliant multi-season knit as well; it’s cosy to snuggle around your neck in the winter, and provides a great single layer in place of a cardigan on cool summer evenings.

Pattern Notes

This pattern uses the traditional hap shawl construction. You start by knitting a triangle with loops at the side edges. You then cast off the top of triangle (keeping one stitch on your needle) and pick up the loops from the side edges. The lace edging is knitted on sideways.
