Product details

This pretty lacy cardigan was inspired by the traditional Shetland Hap Shawls, with their plain garter centres and brightly coloured feather and fan edging. While shawls are lovely, I don’t wear them nearly as often as I should, so I created a cardigan version. The Hap Cardigan is designed to drape loosely at the front. As the cardigan does not fasten at the front, it is recommended that you choose a size with 0-5cm negative ease at your high bust (round torso at your armpits) rather than your full bust measurement.

Charts are included for either a two or three colour version.

The 3 colour version was worked in Icelandic lace weight, or you can substitute with 340 (400, 480, 550, 650, 730) m / 370 (430, 520, 600, 710, 800) yds of MC
160 (180, 210, 230, 260, 280) m / 180 (200, 230, 250, 280, 300) yds each of CC1 and CC2

When choosing a yarn to substitute, select a heavy lace weight yarn that will retain its shape well after blocking. I would recommend a high wool content.
