Square or triangular, often featuring a garter stitch center and feather and fan border, haps enthuse knitters all over the world. Mini Hap Cowl is a lightweight interpretation of the traditional Shetland cosy shawls.

Hybrid accessory between cowl and shawl, the heavy laceweight version will provide a little warmth for those chilly summer evenings, while the fingering version will bring some cosiness around your neck when colder days settle.
