This simple, everyday triangle in three sizes (doll, petite, tall) is distinguished by the fluid drama of its scalloped hem, the waves of which are further accentuated by using a random mix of natural colors, to be determined by the knitter. The hem lace is a variation of the easy-to-work feather and fan motif, used in traditional Scottish hap shawls. This design is a tribute to those timeless beauties, now worked in a modern, one-piece construction. Because the hap was a workaday garment, this design is named for the Shetland sheepdog, a working animal which also sports a coat of dramatic shading in brown, gray, and white fur. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
