The Hansel Hap yarn set designed by Gudrun Johnston is just a few of our favorite things here at The Woolly Thistle: Gudrun, J&S 2ply, and haps! This Full Version of the Hansel Hap creates a square shape. This gorgeous hap is knit with Jamieson & Smith 2ply jumper weight yarn and will provide warmth and comfort to you or a loved one. This Hansel Hap is sure to be a treasure for years to come.
Gudrun Johnston's Hansel Hap was first published in 2010. She recently relaunched this classic pattern with new colors and we are proud to offer these yarn sets in these new colorways and sizes!
"Hap" is Scottish for shawl or wrap and a "hansel" is a gift to mark a special occasion. A hap forms a large, square shawl that can be folded in half and worn in several different ways. Half-Haps are made in a triangular shape more common to the shawls we generally see today.
