Short Description: Half Fade Hap by LaVisch Designs. The Half Fade Hap is the smaller, triangular sister of the Full Fade Hap. While the version pictured is worked in a solid color, the pattern is written to be knit in a fade. With its generous size, it makes for a wonderful, cozy shawl. This shawl is made in the tradition of the shawls from the Shetland Isles, making for a very interesting construction.  The Half Fade Hap starts at one corner of the center triangle and increased until big enough. Stitches are picked up along the edges and the stunning border is worked outwards. Each color band in its own lace patterning. The shawl is finished with a gorgeous edging that is knitted on sideways and attached to the live stitches of the border as it is being worked.  The instructions for the lace are provided both charted and written out.
