The Shetland Trader – Hansel
This pattern is for a full or half sized version of a traditional Shetland Hap shawl.
The shawl is constructed in 3 parts. It begins with the centre worked in garter st. Yarn overs are formed at the beginning of every row during the centre section. Stitches are then easily picked up from the very visible yarn over loops along the edges and the border is worked outwards. The shawl is finished with an edging that is knitted sideways and attached to the live sts of the border as it is being worked.
