The Book of Haps - Kate Davies

This book brings together a collection of beautiful haps from: Kate Davies, Jen Arnall-Culliford and a host of renowned designers.

A hap is a Scottish dialect word for a simple shawl or wrap. Haps have a particular association with the Shetland islands, where, for more than a century, they were knitted for everyday wear as well as for sale. Combining textile history with contemporary design, this book explores the story of the hap through five beautifully illustrated essays, and thirteen stunning patterns. From Nevada and Finland to Reykjavik, and Burra Isle, the patterns in these pages are as distinctive and varied as their designers’ locales. Though haps are, by definition, functional, wearable textiles, you’ll find they can also be elegant and fascinating, graphic and abstract.

Whatever your knitterly interests, you’ll find the Book of Haps an endless source of inspiration and a canvas for your creativity.
