Ever since I designed my Hap Cowl pattern I have thought about incorporating the traditional Hap outer motif in a yoke. You knit the body as sleeves as normal from the bottom up, join, work shaping and then just before you begin the chart you turn the knitting inside out and its worn with the reverse side on the outside, this emulates the garter stitch element of a hap with a bit more structure from the reverse stocking stitch. You can work the yoke in the round by purling every alternate row or (like me) work the yoke back and forth and seam at the end.
