The Hansel Hap (Half Version) 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 halve version of the Hansel Hap creates a triangular hap. It is knit with Jamieson & Smith 2ply jumper weight yarn and will provide warmth and comfort to you or a loved one. The Hansel Hap is sure to be a treasure for years to come.
Gudrun Johnston's Hansel Hap was first published in 2010. She recently relaunch this classic pattern with new colors and we are proud to offer these yarn sets in those new colors.
"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.
The Hansel Hap (Half Version) Yarn Set is available in three sizes based on the pattern and each size is available in three colorways. Please make your color and size selection in the drop down menu.
