This hap, with its neat i-cord finish and knit-purl patterns, can be worn in multiple ways.
This hap recalls the surface design of Hebridean ganseys with knit-purl patterns alternating with rows of plain stockinette in a series of broad stripes. Beginning with just a few stitches, the hap is knit and shaped completely in one piece, with a neat corded edging worked continuously as you go.
