A circular cowl inspired by the elements of traditional Shetland Haps, worked flat and then seamed this cowl uses garter stitch, simple lace and colour changes for a surprisingly easy but effective looking knit. My two colourways are inspired by nature in Shetland: Colourway 1 reminds me of the sea, sand and cliff’s whereas Colourway two is inspired by the heather, peat banks and moss you can see all over Shetland.
