Sandra’s Supreme Shoormal
Hello everyone, today we thought we’d share something inspiring that Sandra worked on during lockdown – A Shoormal Hap knit in Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight!
We launched our Shoormal Hap a couple of years ago, its a classic and timeless Shetland Hap, which is a square shawl that usually has a middle, borders and an edging. These have been made in Shetland for hundreds of years and used for babies, as outerwear and just as a blanket – its a surprisingly versatile item!
In the pattern version, Sandra used Shetland Heritage Naturals which worked beautifully – the yarn has an excellent drape and handle but for this version, she decided to use our undyed woollen spun Jumper Weight, Shetland Supreme for a cushier version and I think you will agree it is beautiful!
My (Ella’s) boyfriend Peter also made me this Hap Board during Lockdown, following the excellent Tutorial on Kate Davies blog but he is a joiner so it came out perfect, so we thought the new Shoormal was a great opportunity to try it out – Nothing looks better than a Hap on Hap board!

She used the same size needles throughout (5mm) so although the yarn is a bit thicker it came out the same size (45 inches square) perfect for the back of the couch or on your bed.
Truly a timeless piece of knitting!
