“The traditional Shetland Hap shawl is a genre that I gravitate to time and again in my design work. I find it to be such a great combination of beauty & utility, while providing a comforting and interesting knitting experience. For this variation I wanted to modernize the look by creating an interesting, non-traditional construction, playing with tonal color variations, and adding bands of elongated stitches into the traditional shale border motif. While traditional haps are square in format, this version is triangular to match the more commonly-created style of our present day knitting culture.” – Jared Flood
