In Happit, Kate Davies introduces you to five of her favourite wrap and hap designs.
A hap is a Scottish dialect word for a simple shawl or wrap. Haps have a particular association with the Shetland islands where, for more than a century, they were knitted for everyday wear as well as for sale.
Exploring a range of different knitting techniques from simple lace to colourwork, each pattern has been carefully created with easy-to-follow directions (including charted and written instructions where relevant) and each design offers a characteristic combination of straightforward knitting together with stylish results. Accompanied by two essays by Kate, and stunning photography by Tom Barr, take your choice from the patterns on offer in this book and you are sure to be ... well happit!
