Hansel — Kit

By Gudrun Johnston.

This kit contains enough yarn to make the triangular version of Gudrun's Hansel pattern — a traditional Shetland Hap shawl. A ‘Hansel’ is a gift to mark a special occasion, such as the birth of a baby.

Construction

This shawl is constructed in 3 parts. It begins with the center triangle worked in garter stitch. Yarn overs are made at the beginning of each row to increase the triangle. Stitches are then easily picked up from the very visible yarn over loops along the edges and the border is worked outwards from the center triangle. The shawl is finished with an edging that is knitted sideways and attached to the live stitches of the border as it is being worked.
