Hapisk

Hapisk mingles Iceland and Shetland together in its name as well as in its very stitches. It is Hélène’s Icelandic interpretation of a Shetland hap and is part of the The Book of Haps co-edited by Kate Davies and Jen Arnall-Culliford. A hap is a Scottish dialect word for a simple shawl or wrap. Haps have a particular association with Shetland where for many decades they were knitted for everyday wear as well as for sale. Hélène’s design is a big garter stitch square shawl with  stripes and a typical Icelandic lacy border. A central slit gives it a modern, wearable feel, in the manner of a poncho and, if wrapped around one shoulder, echoes the traditional Icelandic striped long shawl.

Yarn used: Gilitrutt Tvíband by Hélène Magnússon
